What happened to the Open Directory? Does anyone know why this site has gone down?

I'm as clueless as you - but that toast and jam sounds good.

Dmoz.pl's still up. I take it you got a different message to the current explanation?

No one appears to know yet on Search Engine Discussions, one of the best places to talk about the ODP outside of the ODP's own discussion forums.

"It's the Internet, stupid."

It's working fine for me, right now. Did it just not *answer*? Or was there a nasty gram there instead?

There was a page explaining that the site was down and they were working on it. I've never seen a major site do that for five hours, aside from eBay.

You wanna work up some indignation; aim it at Deja (no-longer-news) I have no hope at all either that the old archives will ever come back, nor indeed that they still exist, and I don't think they've been archiving the stuff posted since they dumped the old archive, either.

You wanna blow the lid off something, go there.
