I'm leery about filing a reinclusion with the stories I have heard about sites dropping even further even though they have been cleaned up
I confess, it's not something I've seen, but obviously you need a pretty high degree of confidence that your site is going to pass scrutiny to go ahead with it.
I certainly wouldn't rule out algorithmic demotion of your listings based on the symptoms. But I guess you want to have it clear in your head whether you are just no longer relevant, or whether you would be relevant were it not for a negative effect applied by Google?
