ODP/DMOZ Creates Community Blog

WebmasterWorld members announced that the ODP has created a blog which is run by AOL staff.

That's great, some say. They always believed there was an intelligent force behind DMOZ and hope it persists. They hope that a new era is about to arrive with better quality.

I'd love to see AOL make a sincere effort to diagnose and fix the weaknesses of DMOZ (no need to repeat that debate/list). There's a huge opportunity for changes that are win-win-win solutions for DMOZ volunteers, AOL shareholders, and quality-oriented webmasters. The only losers would be the fakers and spammers.

My only gripe with this is that I wish it happened earlier. Right now, in light of all recent events relating to DMOZ (in a negative light), it appears that they formed this blog because they're in damage control mode.

Forum discussion continues at WebmasterWorld.
