Back in 2000 I created a business directory and proceeded to promote it using various means. I purchase a email broadcasting software and while learning to use it I manage to send the same email to a DMOZ directory personel about three times in five minutes by accident. I promptly got an email that stated that I would be sorry for spamming him.

About 3 months later the directory hits reach 20,000 per month and I traced it back to one source a link in DMOZ that stated, "Do not go to this site it will crash your computer". AH AH AH.  About 8 months later we sold the site for $475,000 to a company that trades publicly in Toronto Canada. DMOZ works and directory listings work I am not sure they still carry the same weight as they did in the past.  At [nofollow] we provide information on web tools, tips and successful web marketing stories like this one.
