jack1960xx, I can easily imagine a search that would only bring up a certain dmoz/odp page because only that odp/dmoz page has the keywords. But if you want to send in a spam report (throw in the keyword filey so I can find it quickly) I'll be happy to check it out and see how much crowding is going on. Please, use less CAPITALS in the report though--you're making everyone's ears hurt. :)

"... Talking about a "FAIR SHAKE" ...
1) is it FAIR for google to tell us not to use affiliate programs with little original content ... THEN BURN UP 5 or MORE spots in their top 50 results with links to the SAME DMOZ content? ... I THINK NO ... "

(Hmm, your "preview" post seems to delete part of a message for one reason or another. Below is what I intended to include in the post above.)

This is what googleguy is responding to.

It's wrong to call all of the offending links "same" content, but of course they're similar. I have no idea how Google would decide which link to list, if any. If Google would regularly link to their Google Directory equivalent then all of the other ODP-datauser links would be irrelevant to the end user.

I look forward to these links being screened out of searches too.
