While ill my Google account – Gmail, YouTube, Blogger – was suspended.
Logging on just produced a message that I had likely violated some term of service and no further information or query or interaction with Google would be possible, except for a one time appeal to an unknown person at Google by way of a form.
For months, beginning a few years ago I could actually see someone “hacking” my Google account as activity in my browser where something was trying to log into my YouTube. Suddenly my password would not work and I would have to use my recovery email, security questions etc. to reset it. Sometimes I would reset my password and it would happen again within 20 minutes.
I also had a recurring problem that lasted much longer where my YouTube and Gmail were functioning, but this blog and other blogs would disappear, sometimes for up to 36 hours. And then reappear with no explanation. Hence I began to mirror them all on WordPress, and even simply to write my longer, original pieces for Breitbart, Daily Caller, etc. and then repost them (often a longer, unedited original form) on my blog with a link to their original publication site later.
Amusingly when I wrote about this on the WordPress version and shared it to a Google+ group for Libertarians several there simply insisted I had to be a bad person who had violated the Google Terms of Service handed to Moses by God when Moses was reincarnated in Santa Clara, California to start a knew religion for libertarians with Aspberger’s syndrome, Moronism.
Today on a lark I did my daily morning attempt to log into my suspended Gmail account (I’d already created a new one and switched any crucial business to it), and Google suddenly asked to text my phone a code, as my account had been subject to suspicious log on attempts. The screen below was part of the “explanation.” As of now we are back.
I still have no faith this isn’t just some little Google moderator deciding s/he didn’t like my politics, either on cis/his/its/her own or when reported by some Google user.
