Dmoz Extortionist Wanted $5000

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.
Seriously!?

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 it…. 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 removed… WOW
dmoz… corrupt… no…..
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 “editorial” system EVER and especially since now they are trying to talk about paid links

Check out the full post, and the comments over at Shoemoney.
