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!

The tone is aggressive. You may not be able to see it, but once you start telling people (more than once mind you) to change their submitted work, unless your the professor, or your their mother, people don't like being told what to do.

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!

Then you tell him exactly what to write.

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?

Then you get sarcastic.

All im saying is that i just cant wrap my head around why he would refuse to update his article.

I don't know where you are from, but when someone is helping you, you don't say phrases like "I can't wrap my head around why he's refusing to do what I'm telling him to do."

A piece of advice for you:

Stop talking arrogantly. If you've spoken that way to google yourself, that might be why they are refusing to open your accounts. Be polite to all parties involved and you'll have a much better chance. No one likes to be told what to do, and how to do it. You can tell your employees what to do, but not Dan or anyone else on this forum.

And I really do genuinely feel bad for you, because I can't imagine what it's like to not have my emails and photos, and everything digital taken away from me, we've grown to rely on it. But there are two ways about going about reinstatement and lately, you've been ticking off the judge...

I actually come from a place where politely (yes, politely) pointing out factual inaccuracies in news articles and asking for them to be revised is not, by any stretch of the imagination, rude behavior. And from what i've read on this thread, they have that very same custom in Cleveland ;)

there's a difference between asking and telling
Workflowy. You won't know what you're missing until you try it.

What part of above statement denotes either asking, or telling, for that matter? It's simply an opinion. To come under criticism for "telling people what to do" (in the same sentence where said commenter just did the very same to me ::) ), is just beyond me. OK, i'm done here. Apologies to all who genuinely deserve them. And if anyone can offer actual help, it'll be truly appreciated. But for the rest of you, peace out!

What does Nuff mean?
Hopefully it means stick a fork in it as this one is done.
"LESS IS MORE" It is the cumulative effect that kills deals!!! How many times do I have to say this?  >:(

Submitted recovery form over 10 times. Nothing doing... Scared they'll completely delete my accounts' content. If anyone has any ideas, please share. TIA

I am having issues with my kosher android tablet lately every time I open my tablet it makes me sign in again and they keep on suspending my account and i have to log in from a browser and type in a capcha code and it is unsuspended but this keeps on happening any ideas what the issue might be? they say it was suspended due to "violation of terms and conditions" but I can't think of anything that I am violating?

another seemingly unrelated issue I am having with this account is that when I send an email the name that comes up on the receivers end is my email address not my name, any solutions?

Using a VPN (which may be how the kosher phone works) may be a violation of terms and conditions, and may be the reason for issue with how your name comes up. Try talking to the tech department of the kosher phone and see if they can help you.
