Your waiting will accomplish anything as we do not provide such an insight.
> Like I mentioned the site has been online since 2007,
Which is not relevant fro DMOZ.
> I definately know we have followed all the guidelines,
In your first post you mentioned you did not follow the guidelines. Each time you suggest a website you are told to suggest a site only ONCE.
> but the problem is one doesn't know how long it takes to review this submissions,
A review takes normaly a few minutes, sometimes a little longer.
But the time between suggestion and review is unknown. It can be a day, a week, a month, a year, or even longer. We do not know.

It is very easy.
After a site has been suggested there are a few possible states
1. the site is listed - you can check yourself, no need to suggest the site again
2. the site is rejected - read the guidelines and you can know which types of sites will be rejected, no need to suggest the site again
3. the site is still waiting review - if not listed and not rejected it must be waiting, no need to suggest the site again
I think dmoz should either be relevant or not relevant.
does it take 1 or 7 years to be reviewed?
I see you pointed out, that how long the site has been online is not relevant to dmoz, a year, or 7 years doesn't matter to dmoz also, what is the point of dmoz? when one waits for such a long time, your forced to resubmit again, to make sure that your not over looked.
So called volunteers either they are doing something or they should get out of volonteering.
You said there are 3 possible states, if your listed you can see, but if your rejeted or still waiting to be reviewed how do you know.
Or is this just hide and seek
