    People have been complaining over at Google webmaster’s help group for quite some time about home pages disappearing and no one has bothered to check it out. This semi-popular site doing the same hopefully will encourage them to look into it, but will probably just be a handjob to fix dmoz since it’s gotten so much press lately.

    http:// dmoz.org/ does a 301 redirect to http:// http://www.dmoz.org/

    I wonder if somehow, it’s deciding that http:// search.dmoz.org/ IS http:// http://www.dmoz.org/ and so then discarding http:// http://www.dmoz.org/
