I am not saying this is what is happening but here are some other possible, theoretical, speculative, alternative scenarios :)
#4 They could possibly have an automated review process (similar to how email spam checkers work) to automatically judge reinclusion requests without requiring immediate human involvement.
#5 Google has used time based penalties in the past and possibly there is a minimum amount of time your site needs to be in the penalty box before a human will step in and review it.
ps I understand your feelings and would likely feel the same way but that isn't going to make anyone more money. Let's ask future respondents to keep focused on things that will help us all make more money :)
