Ya I would not put it past MS to buy that site/company so they can have some more tax write-off's, and own even MORE of the internet.

Guess they could not call it the open directory anymore.

It would crash too much on the server platforms

Have to call it the closed directory!

hehe, yup it was an April fools joke!

... maybe it wasn't one by dmoz, but maybe Homer did it himself as a joke for us all?!
