Well you'll probably need to go over to the Google Help forum and see if you can get someone's attention over there. I have heard of people being reinstated after they made enough noise, but you don't want to be nasty about it.
We don't have any Google people that visit here anymore.
Do you have *any* idea what might have caused your traffic surge? For example, one of my sites has been under a slow bot attack for the past month, and the first thing I did was remove the AdSense from it, because of just this kind of scenario.
Another thing you might try is to look and see if there's going to be one of these AdSense In Your City gatherings anywhere you can get to, where you can talk to a real live person face to face. Even if you have to travel a little distance to do it, it might be worth it to you if it resurrects an eight year old account.
