Hi @Denis SE;

I have seen this before, and also ignored, but there had been a violation.. Smiley Surprised

For some reasons the system lists all past violations even if fixed.  However, there is still an active  violation with the landing page. My understanding is that  Support cannot see "active" violations, until the account is suspended: this is the reason support  assured you that past violations were fixed. Apparently, "violations in progress" are not reported until an action is taken.... (In your case, the violation seems to be with the landing page.  

Verify that you comply with the software requirements.

I would recommend to act fast.
