Yahoo Directory Descriptions in SERP's

Does anyone know how to stop yahoo from using the description from the directory? Is there something you can put in the robot meta tag, like the noodp??
Thanks!!

Yahoo said they will begin support of the noodp tag but not yet a tag to block the yahoo directory.

I interviewed Tim Mayer last night and posted some of the recap on this specific point at http://www.seroundtable.com/archives/006372.html
