Worth submitting again?
Submitted at least 3 times for one of the accounts (created ~5 years ago), yet nothing...

Nothing doing. Accounts still disabled. All legit accounts. Please revise your post where you write:
Update #2, 11/17 at 8pm: Google has reactivated the suspended accounts!

I've submitted numerous requests about my shuttered accounts, yet nothing. Dan, can you pls update your article to properly reflect the facts that Google's reopening of accounts is purely whimsical by nature. Tnx!

Update: They reopened hundreds of people's accounts but missed 3 people's that made orders from several accounts each?

Seriously? 
For argument's sake lets say you're assumptions are correct, does that still not fly in the face of their publically issued statement that they will be reopening all accounts not opened for the sole purpose of phone purchases? Or did i miss the "3 persons" exclusion?

Don't be aggressive. If I had to decide in this particular story if Dan is trying to be A. Helpful or B. A PITA, I would choose the prior. Don't repeatedly berate him on how he's reporting the story.

Just my .02

That must be real easy to say for someone whose accounts have been reopened...
So pray do tell, how would you react if you keep getting shot down after numerous requests to have your accounts reopened yet the Dansdeals article (which, we saw, can affect change on Google) reports the story as if all is hunky dory?
