goldkin: Another Goldkin squishie? Also by Jirlae? And it's *sleeping*? Bonus! (goldkin squishie sleeping)
At around 19:00 PST, my Google account was banned without notice or notification. The ban affected all of my services with Google under the account. When I attempted to log in, I was redirected to this page:

For those playing the home game, that's not a standard ban under the real names policy. That's a full account lock, signaling a more severe claim against the account. Common causes for this level of action include, from experimental evidence, a malicious party reporting a profile for Spam or Impersonation, though this is by no means the only way to disable the account of your choosing. Oh, I did mention this was exploitable, didn't I?

However, this doesn't speak much for the other end of the exchange. How did I get unbanned? And, furthermore, how did I get unbanned in a timely and painless manner?
