I am not a Google + employee and we all know that no one reads the terms of services before signing up. I had no reasonable way of knowing this. Google plus/minus suspended my account on December 19th 2011. I had gone away for vacation to visit my elderly mother who doesn't have Internet.
When I came back home about a week after they suspended my account, The notice said that I violated their naming policies. Though they accepted the name and opened the account they were blaming me for the violation.
They also said that their reviews might be a few days. Well by that time it was already beyond a few days because I had just got back from my mothers and it was well after Christmas.
I immediately changed the name to my name. I made repeated attempts to contact Google plus/minus via "feedback" and I sent something, the one time I was permitted to, on one of the links they made available on the suspension notice. I informed them I changed the name but now, not only well after the "few days" their policy states they take to review but well after a month, they've disabled all my accounts that I've had for years because they accepted my Google + account with a violation of the naming policy that they ,being Google + employees, knew or should have known about at the time of accepting it and still accepted it. Again, not being a Google + employee, I didn't know about that at the time. They accepted it for crying out loud!
Now who's mistake would any reasonable person say this is?
I have had to start over twice on Blogger because of technical difficulties that I couldn't resolve. It's well known they have no support for that among other things. Now they're forcing me to start over again because they accepted me opening my Google + account with a violation they knew of but I didn't yet they accepted anyway and then blamed me for. They're insisting on some twisted logic that would make that my mistake.
I have had the YouTube account for years with no issues and it goes now along with it!!! What are they expecting from me and why are you doing this to me when the whole matter was their mistake not mine!
They took until January 28th 2012 to disable it which shows they don't even follow their own policies. The policy states all reviews will be done in a few days. What exactly are they considering a few days? All through this I've had no recourse and was just waiting for the axe to fall. Now they've done it and I'm paying for their mistake.
All the thousands of YouTube vidz I saved over the years are gone. I did make an attempt to save on to another YouTube account I had opened up suspecting this would happen but didn't act fast enough to have the time to get them all. Not even close. All my original followers and posts on the Blogger blog are gone and because of that, I can't even re-open and use the name I had for the blog because now that will remain unavailable so even those wishing to find me again won't be able to under the name they're familiar with. All because of their plan to have total control over your Internet experience by buying everything up and then tying them all together if you open under the same email account. One goes, they all automatically go.
My advise, if you must deal with anything Google, is to have everything on separate email accounts so that if those bone heads want to blame you for their mistake on say, Google minus and delete that account, at least you'll still have your blog or YouTube account under a different email. I am learning this the hard way.
I have a widget on this page where you can sign up for the cause I made through cause.com in the attempt to try to bring some attention to their attempt to control you. Please sign up for it.
OK, now I'm editing this in as causes.org just updated they're system and now nothing but an error shows on that widget. MMM I wonder how much Google is involved with causes.org. lol If they fix it, I'll bring it back but thought I'd delete the error. No use having that here.
Below is the link to it.
Ridiculous Google +
