I was just coming back to login to contribute to editing again and was shocked to see the news.The DMOZ url will not return. The directory will return. The new site details including the new URL will be posted here when it is back up and running.
You aren't the only one curious to see what they'll do next, but that is out of our hands now; we are concentrating on launching a replacement editable directory...I wonder why AOL didn't just transfer the domain to the community? If they have no interest in it then why not just hand it over?
