I couldn’t believe was I was reading. Shoemoney was asked to pay $5000 to a DMOZ editor to keep his site listed in the directory.
A while back I got a email from a guy claiming to be a DMOZ editor saying that I had to pay him $5,000.00 or he would have my site: shoemoney.com removed from the dmoz.
I thought nothing of itâ€¦. then today I got a email from him saying it was removed and I might want to rethink not paying him. I thought I would check just for grins.
It was removedâ€¦ WOW
dmozâ€¦ corruptâ€¦ noâ€¦..
I never thought I would say this but I don’t even care anymore. I am stunned Google still uses this as there business directory as its the most corrupt â€œeditorialâ€ system EVER and especially since now they are trying to talk about paid links
