sza you’re right, but sphinn’s spam protection actually works so I’ve buried my sphinn-bot<sup>(mega alpha)</sup>.

I wouldn’t mind additional open communication from Google.  However I’d question the ‘scalability’ of such a task.  Sure it might be as simple as a few clicks and a few seconds but how would you feel if you were in Google’s situation with possibly thousands or tens of thousands of reinclusion requests?  All of a sudden those 3 – 4 extra seconds to click on an additional link, button or what have you ads up.I doubt Google is ignoring the request guys.  It certainly isn’t a new request by any means.  However they have their reasons for not following through with this at this time.Keep at it; maybe one day it’ll be implemented and we can move forward with our next requests.John Jones- 10 minutes of SEO, SEM & Internet Marketing

"how would you feel if you were in Google’s situation with possibly thousands or tens of thousands of reinclusion requests?"Well, how would I feel if I had a problem on my hand that could be solved by employing another 10 people, and oh, by the way, my company would be worth 170 billion dollars, as of today?Perhaps I’d just weep in a corner, feeling sorry for myself. How would you feel?
