Why hasn't my site been added in DMOZ?

There is no rule-of-thumb guide as to how long it takes for a website to be reviewed and included in the directory. It can take anything from from a few hours to a very very long time. But there is some relief.
DMOZ editors have set up a public forum at http://www.resource-zone.com/ where anyone can enquire about the status of a website's submission. The forum can help a lot because some sites are rejected, but the submitter isn't informed. People at the forum can get and pass on that kind of information. Also they can tell you if your site is still waiting to be reviewed. But they won't usually review and add sites, so you may get information but still have to wait.
We also have some DMOZ editors, so feel free to ask any questions.

I agree with you. An incredible endeavor, regardless of whether all of the people who've worked on the directory are still active or not.
Good to have you aboard.

Perhaps that is because people have to become members in order to submit to Zeal?
Zeal has 138,361 members
We don't have an easy way to find out how many ODP editors have added more than 10 sites in the last week. There are currently 9,907 active ODP editors. Some are much more active than others, as is generally the way in volunteer organisations. The 286 editors with higher level permissions (meta, editall and catmv) tend to be very active.
The ODP is adding about 1,000 sites a day.

Very, very good information. (the 1 through 4)
Now to get the masses to read it and follow it. :?

Perhaps your site is competing with the DMOZ editors' website under the category you are submitting to.

Does anyone else have this problem? Why can't I even visit dmoz.org?

Sorry, but unless those last two words were a complete accident, you actually ARE a spammer. You are never to resubmit to anything where you are already listed.
I only submit for two websites and that was once a month.
The idea is to submit once ever.
This advice is just my 2 cents. How about I send you a bill for 2 cents every month? Get it?

Once a month is spamming, either you get marked as a spammer, or an editor decides to skip reviewing the site for making his life hard, or you keep pushing yourself to the end of the line if the editor reviews in date order.
I don't spam I only submit for two websites and that was once a month.
I have this image of people standing in the line at a bakery waiting to get served, and some guy in the middle gets impatient, and keeps walking to the end of the queue.
