A nice way to tie surfing habits to a real person. I like how all these companies promise to never share personal info but all it takes is a subpoena for them to start spilling their guts and yer fckd.
Cripes is the word I was searching to describe the situation. What happened to their "Don't be evil" philosophy?
Google is everywhere: gmail, g+, google analytics, google webmaster tools, youtube, google adsense, google adwords... one mistake and all is gone.
The same can happen on YouTube. It is some recent Google update that angers a lot of brands. People set their brand's establishment date as birthday and get blocked from all Google services.
Just google "You do not meet the age requirements for a Google Account." and you will find a lot of angry discussions on the topic.
Simple - just pick up a vcc and boom you're in.
How about fucking off G+ ? Come on people, what's so important if you are on one social network or another ?
I use Facebook only to get connected with around 50 close friends, communicate and share some images or info. nothing else.
And i don't need a new social network to do the same thing.
Does google Disables even Gmail ID's, Really weird and Hearing this for the First time!
Yeah. Gmail is part of G product =)
FUCK G .. I hope soon something will replace google like google did with yahoo !! I wish I was the one to do that!!
Thanks for the warning...
But understand this has nothing to do with google messing anything up lol, this was your own fault for not reading T.O.S and breaking them man. You can't get upset at google because you neglected to read their T.O.S
Thanks for the smoking gun.
Dont be evil my foot, I would wait for the day when the Google+ project bombs like buzz, wave and bla bla bla.
Google is going crazy
Who said I'm upset? I'm disgusted.
In a 1 press of a button they blocked access to account with 2 years of good track, that includes:
They didn't take the time to warn, they just used the situation to get my personal details. Thats disgusting, and although I have much to loose if I dont unblock the account something tells me that its a good time to part from Google and search for an alternative.
Cause you know, tomorrow I might break another TOS mistakenly and then they will want to count my children as well.
And I bet you read all the T.O.S on everything you sign up for, i think the IM term for you is T.O.S.S.A.
I know I know facebook lovers like you never want G+ to get succeed .. but stay tuned
To those curious how it ended:
I faxed them my passport, and asked to unblock my account. Since I clearly do not violate their TOS. In spite the fact that I was born at 2009 i'm no longer a child:
After that :
1. I opened a new brands' mail on mail.com, and actually liked it more than gmail.
2. Replaced Analytics with Woopra - really nice replacement.
3. Moved the brand's blog to wordpress.
4. Decided that I no longer need google webmaster, as some of my sites are doing very well without it.
5. Created about 300 gmail accounts for black hat activity on Google+.
All in all I think I gained more than I lost.
devilsreject, do you see me making threads blasting a multi billion dollar company because I lost an account for breaking T.O.S? It's very clear your a child.
