Hi, my website still shows ads, even in google cache, but I checked the "Site diagnostics" tab and there are a lot of "http://images.google.com/..." links blocked for robots.txt!

In the case of ads showing on cache pages and image search results it's not your robots.txt file that needs to be evaluated, but the one of the search engines ( like [images.google.com...] ), because cache and image results are part of a frameset provided by the search engines.
So it's ok that you get these messages on your Site Diagnostics page, because their robots.txt disallows crawling.

Well, the problem is that the ads doesn't show AT ALL not only cached pages, and this is the first time I saw these logs on Site Diagnostics

I had this happen on a topic about kitchen knives that used to show ads just fine. Google is very strict -- is there ANYTHING discussed on that website that could trigger a filter? Guns, knives, etc.
PS.. I'm running Yahoo on the "questionable" site now with great results.

Also check out Google's Webmaster Tools. If they have found malware on your site, they will disable Google ads as well.
I don't think they are doing it sitewaide (unless they find a majority of pages with malware on them)- just the actual pages with malware (or suspected malware).

Well, we have a lot of content. The website is about gaming community. However, we didn't receive any notice from Google. We dealt already with site suspension a while ago (another website), but this is not the same since they didn't notify us at all.
No, thereís no maleware on our servers or any kind of software which could jeopardize users experience.

Well, since Google says you're clean, waiting for an answer from Google will be your best bet at this point.
