If you want an honest answer I would say yes, you're banned.
If your domain is the one I think it is you have *no* pages in AV at all. If the pages you submitted to AV are the same as the ones listed in Google then I am *sure* you are banned.
As to seeing Scooter visit, is this only after you submit, he will still come to check for 404's.
This isn't intended as a criticism of your site or your promotional tactics, just the simple fact that AV does not like these type of pages.
NFFC- can you email me which domain you are referring too, and why the comparison with google?
i have heard of this before. what exactly would this command do and why would it benefit me? where do i insert it? does it effect my status w/other engines?
You have to use it at your own discretion (after all it's kinda nice to find a page optimized for 1 engine rank well in others), but if you fall into any of the following categories, it would definitely be a good idea.
1. optimize the same content for different engines
2. use tactics that aren't accepted by all engines
3. use a relativley large amount of doorways
4. have had trouble with banning in the past
