    I had a site removed from the dmoz directory and was wondering if google will remove it as well. I know google uses dmoz to get into their directory, but, not sure about the reverse. Has anyone ever had this happen to them?

    I'm not sure but I'd probaby say Yes, it would be removed. I say this because I had a site moved to a different category in dmoz (which was better) and that listing was updated in the following google update. Recently I had the description changed (which was better) and I am expecting to see it reflected in the next Google update.

    Do you have any idea why it was removed?

    I am not sure why..... I had put in for a change to a better directory a while back and now it is gone... I am giving up all hope for dmoz.org, if google would drop them then they would just fade away. I see the aol.com results are now inktomi only with the dmoz sites so hopefully google follows suit.

    I'll second that! The sooner gone the better.I've got a good listing in google without them and if it ever gets to the point
    where I have to have the od to make it i had just as soon quit.the main problem (like yahoo) is that they are not consistent.I don't mind playing by the rules but make them the same for everyone.

    Pleased to see AOL have ditched it.
    Now hopefully everyone else will see AOL's wisdom & do the same.

    I second that!

    hopefully google will see that it is just a "Good ol' boy" directory. The only listings that get accepted are merchants and the dmoz editors sites!

    Looks like I'm the only one around here who still likes ODP.

    If ODP ever removes Groundzero I'll probably be joining you guys in your "praise". I've read in other forums where webmasters have requested changes to their listing but have instead been given the "boot".

    Moral of the story, try not to draw an ODP editors attention to your website if youre already listed.
