DMOZ Home Page Disappears from Google

Sphinn users report that the DMOZ homepage is missing from the Google results. While you can still do a site:dmoz.org search and find a few million results, searching for "dmoz" alone won't bring up the homepage.

A screenshot, taken by Barry on Search Engine Land, is below:

Does this have anything to do with Search Engine Land's report of the Google Directory Ban of September 2007? Danny Sullivan wonders if that's the case.

Truthfully, I wonder if it has anything to do with DMOZ's apparent corruption.

Discussion continues on Sphinn.
