    I *know* that quite a few ABW members are ODP/DMOZ editors who may not want to reveal themselves.. so I thought an anonymous poll might be interesting to figure out how many lurk around here.

    I should be able to vote 8 or 9 times, as I applied that many times and was rejected.

    I even told them to add me as an editor in a field I don't give squat about, just to prove I am not trying to take advantage, and their response was, "Well, we just don't think you're sincere."

    So, phhhhtttt!

    Applied and never heard nuttin about four different times. But I want to just say how wonderful all the DMOz editors are, how I think they are all doing a great service for the community and are all above average people. My web sites are .... [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Well, as I said before Dynamoz will have a PR of 9 and all ABWers will have their own PR9 page with a single outbound link. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    Now, if the ODP was a democracy we'd have the beginnings of a movement to list affiliate sites [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    I've edited a couple of categories over the years but no longer. You didn't have a choice for ex-editors, so I couldn't vote.

    Since this page still exists:
    http://dmoz.org/profiles/prykej.html
    It looks like I am still an editor.

    This means nothing, though, since the categories that I created,
    Computers: Internet: WWW: Website Promotion (1,237)
    and
    Computers: Internet: WWW: Website Promotion: Search Engine Submitting and Positioning (630)
    no longer exist in the directory.

    I joined when it was still newhoo.com, before it was purchased by Netscape.

    I'm sure that many people liked the changes, but I pretty much lost interest.
