Google has banned my google groups account. No notice, no explanation and no way for me to contact them. Looks like I am not the only one, (2). I am getting the same screens as this guy.

I don’t think it is too much to ask to at least send an automated email when you ban an account as to the reason. Should group owners not get a bit more consideration and service? If it is a system glitch then I would expect a notice with a way to have your ban reviewed.

I may have to consider moving my groups elsewhere. Not a fun thing to do. I am sure I will lose a lot of subscribers along the way.

UPDATE – Sep 05, 2008: FirePHP now has a New Community Forum hosted by Nabble2.

UPDATE – Oct 14, 2008: My google groups account is still blocked. The worst part is that I cannot even unsubscribe from groups!

UPDATE – Oct 7, 2010: After two years google has finally reviewed my account and reinstated my access.
