In a Google Places Help thread about why a submission was taking so long [google.com] to be approved, Joel H from Google said:

If you're curious why you where flagged: using the term 'google' requires extra review. You added email address google@yourdomains.com which caused the listings to be flagged. I understand why people use these unique email addresses, but we do check up on its usage in listings. This can be a problem when folks put tracking parameters in URLs with 'google' in them too.
