Has anyone had success contacting MSN for reinclusion?

I contacted MSn over 2 months ago requesting my site be reincluded in the index. It is currently indexed in MSN but not a single page ever shows up in searches. I used to pull in considerable traffic from MSN a few years back and then it vanished overnight and never returned. I requested a reinclusion from yahoo at the same time and got a response the next day. Within a month my site was ranking again in Yahoo. Has anyone had success with MSN reinclusion requests?

No luck so far, i've had most of my sites deindexed from MSN. I took the two sites that offered the best information and e-mailed webspam@microsoft.com as well as MSNDUDE and have not heard anything. Hard to say what to do, i'm going to start a new site on a new host not linking from my old sites and see if it will show in MSN. Not sure what do to beyond wait and see as Google and Yahoo still send traffic to the removed sites.

I have had success with one of my websites that was thrown out with the bathwater during an update, and it was because it was deemed to be on the borderline of spammy 'on page' wise

It took a week to get the email from MSN. I explained how the site was fine adn then got tossed and they mentioned the kind of sites they link to list. I removed from text and send the email back and it was added within a week.

They did mention that I shoulse use the add site tool to expedite indexing something I found rather curious...

hi i have also contacted msn re getting a site back in, to no avail. I really have no idea what else to do, except keep building it. I reckon as someone must read the request they might as well respond to us!
Note i think is was kicked out for spammy links directory which has long been removed ...
