Just received a response for my reconsideration request. As you can guess, it was the standard violation message.
I also went through the traffic logs in the time period of the previous request, and all I found was two pages - the home page and the most popular page of the website. That's it. Two pages made the decision for the entire website.
From the look at the logs of the current request, I see that they first did a whois on my site, and then nothing. Up till yesterday, I didn't have a single visit from the quality team. They probably based their response on gut feeling.
