Google AdWords Removing Account Bans?

Google has been very strict with who they now allow to advertise on their AdWords platform. Late last year they started to mass ban AdWords advertisers who they felt were downgrading the quality of their search ads. Since then, I have seen thread after thread from advertisers who have been banned by Google.

With any mass banning, you have to imagine there is some collateral damage - that is, those who really should not have been banned but were banned by mistake. I really have not seen any threads from advertisers who have said they were unbanned. That is until now.

A WebmasterWorld thread has one advertiser who said 3 of his 7 sites that were banned are now back in AdWords. He said:

I'm an affiliate for several highly ranked weight loss products on clickbank, and all of them have gotten "slapped" by Google anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months ago.

However, in the past week, I've seen 3 of them magically reappear in the content network.

I have not seen any other reports of being unbanned or "unslapped" recently, have you heard of anything related to this?
