Matt Cutts has issued a warning on twitter to those who lie in their reconsideration requests to Google:

"Don’t lie in a reconsideration request. Just don’t go there at all. Makes Matt *angry*! Matt smash spam!"

Here are three good resources for those who wish to file a reconsideration request with Google:

It’s not just "lies" - it’s lies of omission. They want you to "give up your link broker’s name, address, etc." If it was black hat SEO, they want the name of the SEO and the company name. It’s very personal, which in some ways is surprising.

What Rand said... its really alarming the crud they think you should tell them. IMO you should lie and tell them it was a company that already has a bad reputation and go from there.

I hear the ’reconsideration requests’ provide Google Employees with a thigh slapping good laugh.I was actually thinking of doing a Lydon style linkbate tale, complete with ’dear john’ stories of dog/parot/wife dying, bit of imagination.Matt should publish and let us all have a laugh.
