Years ago, I bought a lapsed domain that had formerly been some kid's homepage - the cached files on Web Archieve looked harmless. Six months went by and Google didn't index my new site. I finally emailed for reinclusion, saying I didn't know what the old owner had done, but I'd bought it on X date and followed the guidelines. The site became indexed within about three days.
