I guess it's possible. But how would you tell the site's still "same type" if you haven't seen most (or any) of it? Whole sections could have been added. Googlebot is largely dormant, so you wouldn't know that from the cache or the index, and you'll have to look. And if you don't, what's the point in reviewing the request in the first place?
If you got flagged for having a non-desirable-by-Google type of site and is written on their screen
Anyhow, it was just very curious to me that they did not want to see the actual site as it currently is (no non-bot hits from Google network since before the recon. request). The whole point of reconsideration request is to make changes before submitting and if you haven't seen a changed site, you're just going to automatically reject the request.
Or am I just starting with the wrong premise that the Google quality raters are coming from Google's network? I guess it's entirely possible that they are all telecommuters and come on from their home ISP nets?
