Apart from DMOZ, I am not sure that any of them is of significance. Yahoo
have charged for inclusion for quite some time (I last checked 2 years ago)
and the rest are too weak to be worth the time investment.

What's more, I wanted to mention that Google exclude (or are about to
exclude) directories from their engine. Who knows if Yahoo and MSN will
soon follow. I find it hard to believe that more than a handful of people,
real people, will actually /follow/ links from these directories.
