We've now reviewed your site... If we don't find any problems, we'll reconsider our indexing of your site.
I believe this is new language they are using in their initial responses to reconsideration request, but PLEASE WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO VERIFY that this is a change in the language they are using.
(I have never suffered a penalty - knock on wood - so I don't have first hand experience with this. However, I have talked to a few people who have had first hand experience with penalties and reconsideration requests, and this seems like new verbiage.)
