Who's talking rubbish?
I NEVER said your directory had been removed from DMOZ (anyone can check back and verify that). You came here whinging about DMOZ and resorted to personal attacks (anyone can check back and verify that - you were given a warning and had another message edited!). I simply commented that one of the sites in your signature what not listable in DMOZ (I did not say it had been removed - anyone can check back and verify that). YOU were the one that told us it had been removed (anyone can check back and verify that). That was news to me - I did not know it had been removed (obviously I agree that the editors that did that made the right decision). I simply said that I was not surprised it was removed based on DMOZ's guidelines for unique content (anyone can check back and verify that)....I simply said any editor can go and check the editing notes to verify the reason (I am no longer an editor, so can not) .... so who talking rubbish?

It took me all of about 5 minutes to find these, and they were chosen because they are the only ones showing up for the searches I did that were not listings created by Amray themselves. They have one other thing in common - they are all negative and show Amray owners/supporters/shills to be highly aggressive and prone to foul mouths and ad hominum attacks. Out of a sense of fairness, I tried to find an instance of one or more independent positive reviews, and found none. Zero.
I have issues with DMOZ. I think they are being crushed under their own weight, are increasingly falling behind in relevancy (the web is growing too fast to keep up with) and that there are far too many instances of editorial corruption for my taste, though I freely admit that's probably an side effect of it's own popularity. Nonetheless, I still recommend submitting good sites there - it's a good directory and a good neighbourhood.
I can't say the same thing about the Amray directory - my personal (non-moderator) opinion is that it's a neighbourhood I would not want my clients in. Given that, I don't blame DMOZ for thinking the same way. Acting aggressive in what looks like an attempt to bully others into changing their minds about you only works in schoolyards and playgrounds, IMO.
I haven't said this for a while, but in my opinion DMOZ was right.

Actually, it doesn't work all that well to change people's minds in those places, either.

What a pity there is now one more place where people can read what Amray are really like.
