For webmasters, it reminds many that strange things can happen. Don't assume that because you rant and rave about your wonderful site, with it's "clean" SEO and unique content, that google won't lose you one day. I have seen some pretty strong sites go away recently.

That should do the trick!
Maybe we also need to send a re-inclusion request.
