nkLove Letter to the Incredulous… Roses for all.

Everybody’s Got Something To Hide Except Me And My Monkey
Some parties have referred to me as an ex-dmoz editor. I just want to clear up that I am a current dmoz editor with a growing list of editor names. I have been a dmoz editor for the past three years. Someone else referred to this site as a hoax… Well, if this website was any more real my hands would be in your wallet.

Cry Baby Cry
Over the years I’ve shared what I do with close friends and they too enjoy the pleasure of sabotaging website inclusion requests or delaying them for absurdly long times. We take pleasure in abusing the system. Fact: there are dozens of us with hundreds of editor names.

Living the life I do, I found it surprising to read this about my blog:

It’s too absurd to be anywhere near true, and it sounds like an amalgamation of the wildest conspiracy theories put out in various rabid anti-ODP forums.

I am most definitely PRO-dmoz and have not recently been bitten by a dog or wild animal.

Dear Prudence
Links are a commodity. Links from DMOZ are a hot commodity. Everything in this world is a commodity: everything.

If you disbelieve that someone would be so corrupt as to sell submissions into the ODP, then Dorothy, this is your wake up call.


Either someone’s having a lot of fun with this, or DMOZ is a mess, or heck – maybe both!

Welcome to the DMOZ Gong Show.

Glad to see an update though, it is entertaining IMO. And whether it’s true or not I have no idea, but it’s *entirely possible*.

Google needs to clean this up.

But probably won’t.



I've been trying to find my way online for more years than I care to admit.
