    One of the entries I detest most in my web directories are SEO contest, the latest I keep getting submission about recently is one title "Globalwarming Awareness2007 - A Global warming Awareness in 2007" I have been banning sites associated with this contest and any SEO contest really.

    Do you think this is a "kill joy" act or is it right to do so to protect directory contents integrity?

    Not at all. I think you are right in banning those types of sites from your directory. You have to think about the integrity of your directory, and by doing that you offer a service that has more value to the people that use it. I've seen a few instance of that seo contest, and it at least is trying to bring an awareness to a real issue. However, in order for you to maintain a good directory, you have to weed out sites like these no matter what message the site convey's.

    Though I also take apart in a seo contest, I don't think that you would be rigorous. This kind of contest cause a lot of unrelevant searching results. I think I would do the same, that is why I didn't make a seo contest category in my dir ;)
