same for me. As I've read in the beginning of this thread, you say specifically in response to lewi that all of your methods are whtehat. If they were completely whitehat i fail to see why i would be given a ban.
I might have to shut down my service for a while. I got around it for a bit, ranking rating on other lenses commenting etc, all manually, but squidoo is catchin on quick.
I hope I can continue my service. We will see.
So do we get refunded?
I find it hard to believe that it was all manual when all of the ratings were delivered within 17 seconds(according to squidoo). It was a bot.
Well at least we now know how to get competitors lenses deleted
Just go here and buy this and you can knock anyone down and give them a ban
Want to see any lens go down? Have one you would like in particular? lol
BTW I have sent you both a PM.
Used Sheen's service and my lensrank exploded....only to receive this email from squidoo...
Sheen delivered but it might hurt you in the end. I may not have had my settings wrong I don't know .....just be careful all you hopefuls.
"Yikes! We've noticed that you have done something that violates our Squidoo Terms of Service. h**p://www.squidoo.com/pages/tos.
Your entire account has been terminated and its lenses deleted.
The top 5+ reasons an account could get shut down can all be viewed here: h**p://w3.squidoo.com/squidgone
Specifically, your account was flagged for deletion because you employed malicious means or intent to fake people out on your lenses. Our records show that your account has engaged in a significant effort to manipulate star ratings, and therein the LensRank of various lenses. This usually means creating multiple accounts to cross rate and boost your own lenses and/or lower the rank of others.
As we've posted many times in many places, star ratings manipulation is against our TOS and will get your account locked or deleted entirely.
Please read up on our policies here:
Your account has been locked, as well as the other accounts that were involved, and will be deleted soon.

Just wanted to post a comment on some changes I am seeing with Squidoo coming out this month and I don't think its Sheen's fault here.
(Note: Sorry I dont know how to do the spiffy hiderefer/click box sorry)
Their general tone and attitude seems to be that they are really cracking down on all our tricks.
I haven't used Sheen's service just trying to add some info as this last page is showing that lens and accounts are being impacted.
Im interested. Please PM with details.
Planning on offering your bot for sale sheen? got some squidoo lenses I woudnt mind seeing go accidentally bubbye.
Btw to whoever it was that said you thought it was whitehat.. lol - clearly fudging ratings is not in the whitehat bible...
There's a reason politicians go to jail when they fudge votes. d'uh
I am just stumbling through this Squidoo business. Learning fast.
I certainly want to work a lens for a jewelry retailer, but I need to keep reading a bit.
Do you (or anyone else watching this thread), recommend anyone in particular for lens creation? I don't mean to hijack your thread, so please just PM me.
Are you still offering your services ?
Thats the best thing so far! good investment!
Does your lens ranking increase if it just gets a lot of traffic/visitors or does it
only rise if it gets starred/rated etc?
I believe its the rating are what gets you the rankings.
Has this guy given up on this service? Because im very interested.
