+1, but it sounds like there isn't a good non-Google alternative?

@Anagio I would say the same if you said you got banned from PayPal, Clickbank, CJ.com or any other service. So, you are just assuming that the customer is always wrong? Good luck with that attitude.

@Anagio do you work for Google or something? I asked a question, and your reaction was to accuse me of cheating and other wrong-doing. Seriously?

@FeralOink His case went "viral" - that's how he got his account back. If you need to reach the top of HN to get your gmail back, that's a sad state of affairs.

@Anagio Well, I don't have any personal experience with Google's customer service, but I can say that by far the prevailing opinion on HN is that Google has terrible to non-existent customer service. You can search for "site:ycombinator.com google customer service" to see for yourself.

No, I mean "false positive" in the most traditional sense: The algorithms decide that you violated the ToS somehow, when you haven't. You can't appeal, and you get locked out of all your Google accounts.

@Anagio I don't have any plans to host questionable content. Are you saying Google doesn't get any false positives? From what I've heard (on Hacker News, mostly), the most common reason for a shutdown is the algorithms (NLP?) deciding that you encouraged the users to click on the ads, or some other ToS violation. No human ever reviews the case, and you get locked out of all your accounts.

@Anagio Blogger is also part of Google's empire, isn't it?
