Sorry to hear that. With any luck they'll take the diagnosis more seriously this time. Wouldn't hurt to talk to the shop foreman and express your displeasure at a leaking engine, a stripped drain plug and at feeling jerked around by the whole process.
I thought I had a small oil leak shortly after I bought my Pilot, a coating of the area near the rear main seal inspection plate. I carefully cleaned the oil up and washed and dried the area, and the oil never reappeared so I presume it was just assembly oil. I've seen the same thing on the ends of small engine crankshafts in the past. I wigged out for a day or two though, very anxiety inducing.
With any luck, it'll just be a bad cam cover gasket or suchlike, not a big deal.
