"best he would do is refer me to the webmaster guidelines and he told me to make sure I was not buying or selling links to manipulate page rank. I've never bought or sold links to manipulate pagerank.... never needed to"
I was told the same exact thing when I filed for reinclusion. Implied that I had paid for links, which I never have! My site is 7 years old. I had/have a lot of natural links back to my site from related hobby sites. I also have tons of sites that have links to my site from spam sites, scrapers and so forth. I suspect a lot of sites may be penalized wrongly for this issue.
