Hello,Thank you for contacting us with regard to the name in your GoogleProfile. It looks like you have deleted your Google Profile, and thus weare unable to take further action on your request for us to review thename in your profile.Sincerely,RickyThe Google Profiles Support Team
Dear Google, I would like to bring to your attention a few things before I disconnect permanently from all of your services.On July 15 2011 you turned off my entire Google account. You had absolutely no reason to do this, despite your automated message telling me your system “perceived a violation.” I did not violate any Terms of Service, either Google’s or account specific ToS, and your refusal to provide me with any proof otherwise makes me absolutely certain of this. And I would like to bring to your attention how much damage your carelessness has done.My Google account was tied to nearly every product Google has developed, meaning that I lost everything in those accounts as well. I was also in the process of consolidating everything into my one Google account. (…)

quote: Social media not serious business? Talk to LinkedIn about that one or the 83+% of employers this past year that googled applicant names to weed out the idiots who post pictures of themselves doing a keg stand or hitting a beer bong.
quote: In other words, if a user opts to join Google+, they risk losing all of their services. And even if they manage to convince Google to lovingly restore those services, there's word that the content within (e.g. your pictures in Picasa, your emails in Gmail) may be dead and gone -- purged forever from cyberspace.
quote: Turning off of accounts, if true, does suck, but Tony is ignorant of the simple fact that google makes it easy to export all of your mail, contacts, etc out of their ecosystem whenever you want. Gmail is ad free via pop or imap, and they don't hide that fact in their FAQ.
quote: I have no illusions about Google. I know exactly what they are up to.However, this may be your most ridiculously blind post, since you are quite the fan of Apple, who is legendary in thier grasp of thier consumer's "balls" as you put it. The only difference is Google wants control for free. Apple makes you pay.....a lot.
quote: that's the sum total of Google's business, that's what Google makes 95% plus of it's revenue from. Selling you.
quote: You're singling out Google here, but your points apply to all companies that run advertising networks. This includes Apple (GASP!), MS, Facebook and a number of others. The only difference between Google and Apple customers in this respect is that Apple customers are paying for the "privilege" of having their information sold.

quote: Do you have canned replies that you just paste into articles like this? The weird and kind of creepy wording reminded me of... something. So, I did a Google search and found you posting almost the exact same thing in January:http://www.dailytech.com/article.aspx?newsid=20636...
