I've never heard of deo before now, and hadn't heard of seo until last
week, so I can't answer either question.

Yet again, I have to wonder if these services aren't being used because
people don't find them all that useful (and/or hard to maintain, and/or
spam magnets), or simply because very few people have heard of them.

I'll ask again - is there a list somewhere that details all of the
services/stuff offered by evolt? If not, is there someone who has such a
list in their head who could make this list available to the entire
evolt community?
