    Cant believe it has closed. Shocking. It was one of truest directories on the internet.

    Just read about it yesterday. So sad! I miss all the work and fun in dmoz from all the reorganization we did especially in Regional.

    You have to ask AOL for the reason (I doubt they will tell you though).

    I am saddened at the lost of DMOZ. In trying to answer the question, Why?, I found an article on zvelo dot com, but resource-zone balked at publishing my first effort to post the link here.

    So let me try again: 8 reasons for the demise of DMOZ:
    < we still do not accept urls to be posted at RZ >
    FYI - Using the web link tool in this editor causes the post to be rejected as spam.

    @wells50 - We deactivated the link posting due to spam issues. The zvelo article is about the reasons they had identified for our "Dmize" - Kind of sad, but thanks for posting :)
    @Naeem Khan - Yes, closed. We are working at relaunching a new directory, and will post in these forums when we have something working!

    We are looking forward to a solid replacement/upgrade for the directory. Hope that it doesn't take long to launch the new one.
