Problem with previously (possibly)banned domain

Has anybody had such experience?

Dear Guys and Gals,
I'm very thankful to you for reading my post in advance.
I registered domain (quite a competitive keyword domain) in Feb/2003. I developed a site and got quite many links to this domain. I also got listed in Google index. But still - PR0. Until this update (29/08/2003) google showed 25 links. Now google doesn't show incoming links (in www2, www3) nor the site itself is seen in www2, www3. PR the same 0 .

When the site got listed in google and got 25 incoming links, PR was still 0 for several months.
I think the reason for that might be its bad past. Maybe it was banned previously and that's why such a competitive keyword domain was free.
Now I don't understand why was my site excluded from the index again.

If anybody knows anything about the case like mine, Please advice me what can I do If my site was previously banned.
Does anybody know a possible reason for excluding my site from the index for second time?

In advance thank you very much for any comments.

Your domain has been caught in Google's expired domain filter I would say .Nothing to do with a former ban but because it was an expired domain at the time Google applied its filter.
I am afraid to say that its doomed as far as Google is concerned unless they lift that penalty. which they should do but havent after 4 months.GGRRR!

Can I anywhere on the web find out whether my site was banned or not?
