The Dmoz Meta Admin “Motsa” just updated today the status of the technical problems over at the Open Directory Project, Dmoz.org.
While the Editor Application System is still down with no ETA when, or if it will become available again, did the Editor Feedback Forms as well as the Dmoz Abuse Form become available again.
The abuse form is used to report unethical editors, e.g. editors that can be bribed for listing approvals at the directory.
I wonder why this part of the Dmoz administration system was given attention before the rest of the operative functions of the directory were fixed. Maybe there is a lot more truth to the stories in the search engine optimization community about crooked editors than people might think.
