Open Directory Project (DMOZ) Drops Over 1 Million Sites From Directory?

Did you notice that DMOZ, one of the oldest and largest human crafted web directories, has removed over 1 million sites and 10,000 editors from their directory?

DMOZ Lisitng Drop

A DigitalPoint Forum thread first noticed it. If you look at the live site now, you will see 4,261,763 sites, 89,252 editors and over 1,019,865 categories in the footer. But if you go to the WayBackMachine archive you will see 5,310,345 sites, 99,997 editors and over 1,019,508 categories.

Here are screen shots:

NOW:

DMOZ Directory

 

As you can see, DMOZ dropped about 1 million sites from their directory and 10,000 editors. There was no announcement about this, so I am not sure if this is just a glitch on the footer.

They did however post a rare blog post announcing a new feature for reporting listings.

Of course, most of you don’t bother with DMOZ listings anymore anyway but still, interesting to see 1 million sites just vanish from DMOZ.
