We didn't even get that response to a re-inclusion request , rather a "no manual penalty" and
Like you , we have laid off everyone, cancelled all the sub-contractors, and consolidated servers.
As our algorithms change and as the web (including your site) changes, some fluctuation in ranking can happen as we make updates to present the best results to our users.
But you are right there is a life after Google, in fact I may be less rich, but I feel happier, and will probably re-design the main site as don't have to worry about making the payroll every month, less paperwork and more time to add extra features.
We are really high up on Bing and Yahoo searches, so I can wait, but no Mr Google , I'm not going to chase you any more.
I will just check for technical errors etc and thats about it.
If it all comes back again, that would be nice though :)
