I submitted my site for submission over 7 years ago. I pretty much gave up on being listed in ODP, so I have not made an effort to come into the forum for a number of years. It appeared every time I asked about site review, inclusion, it would make an editor mad and perhaps that was why my site was never listed. I don't know. I do know that Google, MSN and Bing has recognized my site in a top tier status for at least 6 years or in Bing's case, since the the SE inception. Do you think many members were listed as inactive because they stopped coming to the forum because of fear of making an editor mad?
