Submission + - Open Directory Project Crippled

Anonymous writes: The Open Directory Project (ODP) run in partnership with AOL has been crippled for over a month, following catastrophic hardware failure. The system supplies the human edited data to many large 'category' style directories such as those hosted by Google and Yahoo!

Although the public facing site (www.dmoz.org) was restored relatively quickly, the ability to submit new sites and the editing facilities for the 1,000's of editors have been offline since 20th October. Editors on the support forums have questioned the seeming lack of a viable recovery plan which has hampered restoration of the service for over four weeks, with no immediate sign of recovery.
