We've had similar problems. We have a variety of apps running stuff like posting scores to profiles. Recently we've had some apps disabled by what looks like automated bots. We asked for an explanation every time and only got a few vague template answers and a link to the policies. A colleague of mine got banned from the developer app. He can't create new apps anymore and can't reach a Facebook employee to correct it.

Facebook loves being invisible.

I do get annoyed at some of the span that hits my feed, but really, it's facebook. If apps don't post, why would you put them on facebook?

It looks like facebook wants to get out of the whole platform game, and simple be an OpenID provider, message platform, and photo host.

They really do have an issue with communication. Unless you happen to know someone that works at facebook, you're pretty much left in the dark.
