DMOZ- Not a hope in hell

I see there are still some "human web index projects" around which claim they are going to become more accurate than machine indexes because they have editorial standards set by net-citizens. but, searching under the media categories that interest me I think the humans lose out by a long way. It is worse than useless. How will they ever keep up? Submitting a URL is something for the real nerds among us. Must appeal to redundant librarians. Being an editor in Wikipedia makes sense. But being an editor in DMOZ makes no sense at all....unless you have nothing else to do with your life. And that must mean you're in a pretty sorry state of affairs. Like some librarians I used to know....
