    I should go sue them now :noes:

    Im just about done my civil law class anyways :noes:

    and they didnt give me a reason why they closed it... although me and browning came to the conclusion that it might be because my website has a link on an adult website?

    It also has me thinking. Do they even log their shit in a database when they close an account. Like what actual section of the ToS was broken?

    If they had no real proof that any rule was being broken, i dont see if someone does a shitload of blackhat shit, gets 15k. When google closes his account, he sues them and they won't have any information in their database for why they shut him down :hsughno:

    it pisses me off how these huge corporations, including skype transfer thousands of dollars a day, yet they can't get a proper customer service setup.

    They could if they wanted to, they just don't NEED to because everyone still comes running to them handing over cash They could spend 'x' money building up their customer service which will make a few customers happier, or they could spend same 'x' amount on marketing/etc and make a shitload more money doing so :dunno:

    I thought they could cancel at anytime in their terms and conditions. I also didn't get any reason other than the generic "potential risk to advertisers".

    I should give it a go while they're bruised up.
