    Dmoz been hacked or simply f'ed up?!


    Has anyone noticed what's going on with http://www.dmoz.org/?

    I just gone to check to see if a new clients link has been accepted yet (there's some wishful thinking for ya lol), and noticed that all the pages as screwed!

    I have emailed Dmoz to ask what's happened and when the site will be back to normal (well just about to email after posting this )

    Below is a screenshot just in case its fixed before anyone gets to see it lol

    Ouch. I was on there making a submission just the other day so let's hope it's only temporary. They have historically had a lot of server issues.

    DMOZ was down while some maintenance was performed. The outage was expected.
