hey - it's kymber here even though it looks like it's jambaloney. i had to sign in to blogger using his account. why? ugh. it's a long story but here goes.
i was commenting on blogs this afternoon and on one blog i was forced to sign in, in order to publish the comment. it happens from time to time. whenever it happens...it always directs me to a page that asks me to enter my telephone or mobile number...ya, right. i always hit the skip button!
except that today...i was directed to an error msg that said my google account had been de-activated due to "suspicious activity". the msg then went on to say that google takes my account privacy very seriously and therefore de-activated my account for my own personal safety. ya, right.
i was then prompted to provide a phone number so that they could reach me to rectify the situation. ya, right.
i went through all kinds of google help...nothing could help me unless i gave my phone number. so i gave it and was then given a choice of SMS Text or a Voice Call within 10 minutes. i chose voice call as our phone is not capable of receiving texts.
it is approximately 6 hours later, i cannot log in to our blog and i cannot access my gmail. i went to google help and their contact us and left a very nasty msg about all of this, about them wanting my phone number and the fact that i cannot access my google profile and accounts. i demanded that after they finally contact me, and that they delete my phone number! ya, right.
i have left a few "anonymous" comments on some of your blogs and then just decided to stop. strangely enough, i left a comment on my friend Craig's blog - he uses wordpress - and that comment went through fine. with my proper google profile and pic and everything.
if i don't hear something from google by tomorrow, i am copying this blog over to wordpress. i hope that you will all follow as i so enjoy all of you. i started this blog just to document our daily lives...but i must say....the conversations that happen in the comments are very addicting and i love having you all in my life.
this really sucks. has this ever happened to any of you?
kymber out. and hoping that you all have had a fine monday!
EDITED TO ADD: my profile pic on the right hand side of the blog has been blocked as have several pics from the most recent post below this one entitled "misty skies, lots of food and butterflies".
please, can anyone help? have i been reported for something? my last post was pretty innocuous??? what is going on???still haven't heard back from google and starting to get really P*ssed!!!!
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD - ALL PREVIOUS POSTS HAVE ALL OF THE PICS BLOCKED - WHAT IS GOING ON? can anyone please tell me what is going on? this is nerve-wracking and i really hate feeling like i have done something wrong. arghghghghghghgh!
EDITED AGAIN TO ADD - my pictures are gone. my beautiful pictures are gone. why? what have i done wrong? i loved those pictures and now i am crying my face off - i don't know what to do?:!?!?!?!? can someone please help? i sent another email to google help. i still haven't heard anything back.
i am going into hyper-vigilance right now. why is this happening? we aren't overly political or religious on our blog? please someone please tell me what is going on??????
