No recovery since May 5th. And I am loving the top 3 spots. All owned by some guy in India, each one has 3 adsense leaderboards on top and they all look doorway pages :)
I bet they give good user experience not to mention we ran a test on MTurk and had 500 people rate the top 10 sites in our vertical and those 3 sites hardly got any votes.
However according to Google they are giving GOOD USER EXPERIENCE and DRIVING GOOD $$$$$ from Adsense. From what I know the top guy is touching $2000-$5000 a day with Adsense.
No doubt why Google loves his 3 top sites.
