Google Webmaster Guidelines Change on September 28, 2013 at 09:31PM

Today Google's Webmaster Guidelines were changed to issue a little stronger threat.

Previously the page ended with the statement:
If you determine that your site doesn't meet these guidelines, you can modify your site so that it does and then submit your site for reconsideration.
But today they changed this to make it a little stronger:
If your site violates one or more of these guidelines, then Google may take manual action against it. Once you have remedied the problem, you can submit your site for reconsideration.
In this statement both "manual action" and "submit your site for reconsideration" both link to the same page (about reconsideration requests). Could this be because so many people are issuing reconsideration requests that Google is trying to equate them with manual penalties rather than algorithmic penalties?
