I am not sure who Apple hired over there or if they staff is bored but here it is 8:20 PM Pacific and I submitted a iTunes directory listing for the Podcaster News Network and it got approved in about 15 minutes. Now what is interesting is the two that got added of seven feeds I submitted where in the Sports Category. Someone must be having the submission sent to their home machine.
Likewise I deleted three feeds today and they were removed in under a hour. Simply amazing I just wish they would clear out all the abusers that are still littering the directory with listings that have 20 funny characters before their podcast name to be first in the list.
To the losers that do that you ought to focus on content maybe someone would subscribe to your show.
