Lockdown

lockdownThanks Zooomer & OpenID… I signed up for you this morning, and Google suspended my Gmail access:

Lockdown in sector 4!

Our system indicates unusual usage of your account. In order to protect Gmail users from potentially harmful use of Gmail, this account has been disabled for up to 24 hours.

If you are using any third party software that interacts with your Gmail account, please disable it or adjust it so that its use complies with the Gmail Terms of Use. If you feel that you have been using your Gmail account according to the Terms of Use or otherwise normally, please contact us using this form to report this problem.

Fantastic… I fail to see how Flickr has some catching up to do, if Zooomer can’t manage to authenticate me without fracking up my email!

Now, it’s a waiting game. Anybody else have this problem?

UPDATE: 2 hours later, and I’m back in business…

UPDATE 2: Well, I’m pretty sure that Zooomer is the culprit. I tried to login to the service, using my Google (Gmail) account, and I was immediately locked out again. Frack you, Zooomer!

  • Bummer! I’m don’t think OpenID has anything to do with the gmail lockdown though. They are totally separate authentication methods.

  • why frack you to zooomr? its not zooomr’s fault. frack gmail!

  • I don’t know how you could blame Google – we should be happy that they have protections built-in.

    Anyway, I managed to log in using OpenID instead, and there was no problem… all I wanted to do, was login and check it out! Now I can. ;-)
