I think it should be normal to get a second chance after some time. Even people who are sent to prison go for a definite period. If its 100 years they should at least tell me that. When I started my site 5 years ago I was very excited but I didn't know any webdesign, I never got accepted by Adsense, recently I read somewhere on the google pages that my site was rejected. I imagine this was when I started because I haven't applied in a very long time.
My site is nice, I really don't know what I did wrong, this isn't cool, ok...google?
