We are not Google - We are ODP

A common statement on Resource Zone.

How come they won't answer if the category in the question comes in like http://directory.google.com/Top/Home/Family/Foster_Care/ instead of

http://www.dmoz.org/Home/Family/Foster_Care/

Isn't it the same thing, don't they know what I mean?

Yes in many cases it's easy enough to figure out which category you mean, but there are a couple of problems. Many people asking questions really want to know why they are not listed in the Google Directory, and in fact are already listed in ODP. So it's really important that the person asking, knows the difference, since Resource Zone cannot answer why a site is not listed in Google.

Second, since the categories change in ODP, and Google is always one step behind, it's possible that the Google directory category no longer exists in ODP, in which case there is no easy way to figure out what it is.
