I have had similar problems with Yahoo. I have been submitting my site since April, with never a reply nor a listing. The only way I can get listed is by appearing on SOMEONE ELSE'S links page, and having Yahoo drop out to an Alta Vista search that finds my site that way...

I don't know what they are or aren't doing, but so far I have had no results either.
