Is DMOZ still useful or should it be retired?

DMOZ has a proud history. Currently, it's a messy situation. All the categories that I am familiar with are so badly kept up that it's useless for users.

My impression is that DMOZ only gets new submissions from seo types building links or newbies. What do you think?

It is my impression that DMOZ, despite it's proud history, has run thru it's useful life.

To keep this from becoming an abstract debate, please answer me this:

Have you used DMOZ to find anything in the last 30 days?

If the answer is that NOBODY is actually using it anymore to find anything (which is what I believe), then probably it's time to put DMOZ in mothballs and archive it.
