Once it hits the press, there's no blowing over quietly. Google has no motivation to keep it from hitting the press once it goes viral, and they may not want to be seen as having backed down; as so not to set precedent.
That makes sense if you have a negotiating partner.  In this case it doesn't seem like it's possible for anyone affected to reach someone who cares and is able to make a difference.

The logic is that once it hits the press, higherups wil notice.  Then there is at least a chance they my choose to reinstate.

No concern that we are forcing Google to double down. - to make sure the public know that they enforce the t&c?

I guess it depends on whether this is an algorithm shutdown or not.

I'd assume it is and that a pair of human eyes might be sympathetic. System caught tons of orders to one address, assumed all the accounts were fraudulent.

But if not, then all bets are off. But still, Google accomplishes looking scary at what cost? Never good for business to scare the public without a good reason to want to scare everyone.

I think the odds are better that Google is concerned with the publics loss of trust. They can still save face and enforce t&c by giving violators a 72 hr advanced warning that their account will be disabled so that they can make appropriate arrangements.

+1

Permenant closure is still heavy handed,  but with advance warning is defensible.

What lost of trust? Most will look at this the way they do with all the games we play. We got what we deserve will be what they are thinking.
