Yahoo Directory - Manual Update Requests

Hi all,

Just a quick question about the "free" listing for personal websites in
Yahoo Directory.

I have a small site, was listed previously in Yahoo via the free
submission method.  Thing is, the URL changed about 15 months ago.
Since that time, I've been using the online update form and the "if we
haven't attended to it in 3 months, please e-mail ..." address to try
to get the update through, but I've never heard back, and the changes
still haven't been made.  The old link is still there, though if they
tried they'd see it doesn't work any more.

Is this normal for Yahoo?  Is there anything I can do (short of paying
- this is just a personal hobby website after all) to speed things up
just a little?

It's normal.
Nothing you can do except wait (or pay).
If you harass them, you'll lose your listing completely (which may be
preferable now, but you might think differently in the future!).

And... to substantiate this claim you can offer which in particular
attested examples?

Fair enough ... another question ... how long does it normally take
(roughly) to update free listings?  I'm going on for one and a half
years now, which seems a little excessive ...
