An Official Response

Yes, this afternoon, I received an official response from my appeal:

It appears that your site no longer hosts or distributes badware. We
have informed Google of this finding.

Please note that we will be retesting your website at periodic intervals
in order to monitor that it remains free from badware. If we find that
you are hosting or distributing badware in the future, the appeals
process may take considerably longer than the original appeal.

My Translation:

Oh, well, we didn’t find anything wrong with your site after all. That whole blacklisting thing wasn’t really founded. We may still block your site again at any time though, and your future appeals for our repeated mistakes will take considerably longer than this one did.

Gee, thanks for nothing.

    That arrogance is typical.

    They assume that they’re never wrong and that their actions were well founded

    That your site is by nature guilty and that they’ve just given you a pass this time, but they expect to catch you next time around

    What is it with dotcom’s that somehow manage to be more arrogant and treat people worse than the biggest American companies like GE, GM or the Bells. I guess not having to answer anybody except their own kind gives them swelled heads.

    And really if Google has decided to significantly impair user functionality by effectively cutting off access to websites in their own search results through StopBadware without giving searchers the option to turn it off… people should seriously consider alternative search engines

    I recommend and Jimmy Wales has a Wiki based search engine on the way. I’d love to see it give Google a good kicking.
