That may be the interpretation they intended, but it's debatable.

The issue, and what's concerning, is that emails are being bounced back, so the data they may ultimately give, is going to incomplete and defective. This is where the irrevocable damages stems from, and it's what I'm going to lean on in a big way if this is not resolved in short order.
I don't think you should wait, if you think you have a good argument send it now. I agree that one line is the best thing I've seen so far to use.

All that paragraph means is that any service you use is subject to the terms and conditions of that service but it doesn't say anywhere that if you violate the terms and conditions of one service they have a right to shut all there other services

Unfortunately, it seems they may have the better end of the legal argument (see below), but most courts sit in both legal and equitable capacities, and I am confident we have the better equitable claim.

Hindsight is 20/20 eh?

I wrote my comments before you explained yourself so I can quote those comments as well.

Regardless it is something readily available on their homepage so, I would say that it was a dumb rep either way.
well if the reason why your opinion was created, was taken away, then maybe you shouldn't have continued attacking us.

Anyone have a real data on number of people and accounts?
What was the actual number of phones you could order per account?
What was the least number of phones someone ordered and got banned?
What was the most number of phones someone ordered and got banned?

Dude. Nobody is attacking you. We're all rooting for you.
We're just saying to feign ignorance is not going to help. Personally I'd be EECBing every @Google I got my hands on.

Probably best to create external poll which people can send around using email. Oh wait...

Is posting about this on DDMS really productive at this point?
Who do you think you are fooling? You think you are going to pull a quick one on your Creator? Good luck with that.

Sure does, it's one agreement. That's what the line means, by agreeing to this all other agreements become part of this.

ETA: The same terms page says

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

that's not how it came about,
see ppl's comments
and i just sent the topic to someone (who got banned and is not on the forums) and he responded, wow they are attacking you hard .. so it can't be a biased opinion

+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.
