Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
Perhaps slighty off topic to your post, but were you quick to decide on removing 30 domains? Was there an opportunity to keep some domains alive on other search engines, and simply blocking off Google from indexing? It certainly an option I'm looking into to lessen my anger of this situation.
I will post back here as I move along. I'm sure our penalties are for different reasons, but even the one domain I'm requesting reinclusion for is not getting the penalty lifted. My point? Good luck with it. I've never seen or read anywhere that Google will lift the penalty from multiple sites from one reinclusion request. The ironic part, is that the penalty, as read in Google webmaster tools, states that "this website may be in violation..." however the penalty that I seem to have, is not based on each website individually, but it seems based on me, the person, the whole. They made a judgement about me or my ways, rightfully or wrongfully. There is no court of law in this instance. It would seem that no penalty will be lifted until every site is dealt with in my instance.
If you have gripes about the process, I'd be glad to ramble on about that. Trying to get these domains of mine reincluded is simply baffling. I'm guilty of being stupid/ignorant, but certainly I feel like I've been banished to a dark hole for it. There certainly isn't much if any compassion shown to people trying to deal with their penalties.
Hopefully someone can advise us further,
