    Hi,
    today I received invitation to Google + and began with the filling the form. Unfortunately I miss typed my birth year and in the second my mail was blocked! Without of possibility to fix a mistake. :(

    Google offered me two solutions:
    1. to send them copy of my document, which will evidence that I'm 18 years old or more (the mail will be opened in the FEW DAYS!) or
    2. pay $0,30 now and mail will be opened immediately (without verification of my birth year!) :eek:

    I payed.

    But with a lot of sour in my mouth and with the question in my head: WTF is Google doing with us?!? Mafija robbery?

    1. OP forgets which year he was born in.
    2. OP wants Google to fix HIS mistake instantly.
    3. Google say they'll do it in a few days (which is an acceptable amount of time because, let's face it, accessing your Google+ is hardly a pressing matter.)
    4. Google offers OP a way of getting it done quicker, if it's THAT important to him, and charges a nominal fee for the service.

    Conclusion: Google are the Mafia.

    Great work, OP.

    It is a new policy by Google. If you are under 18 year of age then you are at a risk of getting all your google accounts deleted..

    It has happened to someone recently and has been published in newspapers...
