I log into my account this morning and I have a nice little message from ezine articles telling me that I have had my account suspended for use of an unauthorized username.
Fortunately, I knew which one it was. Not because they told me...no no no...actually providing any detail of an alleged offence of the TOS would be too easy. They simply asked me to return my account to 'good standing'.
Now I can't for the life of me figure out why they didn't like the new pen-name I added. It wasn't offensive, wasn't slangy, wasn't really that unusual. No problem, I'll delete it and create another.
But NOOOOOOO...in the meantime, they have yanked ALL of my articles. EVERY ONE! Every click through I should be getting right now is lost.
And knowing their current level of service, it will probably be a week before they fix it, even if I have done my level best to return my account to said good standing.
If they didn't contribute as much traffic as they do, I wouldn't use em. But for today, all I have to say is #$%* ezine articles, the draconian buggers.
