When you hire a lawyer and he says this is against you and this and this, and we can try to do this. Do you take that as attacking you...

+1. Seriously.

When you hire a lawyer and he says this is against you and this and this, and we can try to do this. Do you take that as attacking you...
Bringing media attention to Google's crazy power may help get accounts back and bring on much needed reform.
+1K. Some people are being really defensive here. We get it, this is awful. I'd be devastated as well. But let's get your accounts back as the goal.

it's not true  all it means is that each service is subject to its terms and conditions

Quote
Additional terms will be available with the relevant Services, and those additional terms become part of your agreement with us if you use those Services.

I'd love a poll on this, but i literally cannot see how you are reading this.

It is an if then statement.

If you use those services then those additional terms become part of your agreement with us.

And understanding that when you use any google service you are under the google general agreement you can understand how breaking any term of that agreement now applies to all google services.

Is posting about this on DDMS really productive at this point?
You guys decide. I'm happy to make a post on it.

I think you may get some real data (such as how many people) and may help these people get their accounts back. Cant hurt?

I'm just curious why is this different than advertising for the coin deals from the mint which is clearly against the household limit

Because the DDMS post asking people to order is not asking people to order 100 coins to one person.

Warn others to backup their accounts/not mess with Google.
Try to go viral with Google shutting down accounts and put pressure on them.
