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. ;-)
