Directory re-submission doubt

About 6 months ago I submitted my website to a directory and further it has been approved.
Two days ago I realized that they removed my entry and then I asked them why. Here is the answer:
"We've been under a penalization by google, they said we have too many low quality pages. As a result I've hider a few people to go through all the links in the directory and delete everything that looked spammy, had too small a description and so on. Your link must have looked somewhat spammy to one of them so it was deleted. You are welcome to resubmit though and let me know and I will approved right away. Please use and unique, 300+ characters description as we aim for more quality for both ourselves and our clients."

Now my doubt is:
I had a backlink on that directory, the link has been removed (I do not know for how many time), then I put again the link there.
Could Google think I control that backlink or that I paid to be there?

Can I submit again the link to that directory without having problem with Google's zoo?

Thank them for deleting your link

The site was penalized. It's likely that the link wasn't benefiting you in any way. Time to move on.
