Banned from Picasa

More from the Evil Google:

So, I'm banned from Picasa. No real explanation. No examples of what actually constitutes violations of their Program Policies. Because of course, there aren't any. The scary thing is that I rely on things like Google Documents and, well, Blogger, but clearly I have to find alternatives. But I guess I'd been forewarned.

"Your Picasa Web Albums account has been permanently disabled due to repeated violations of our Program Policies. Google reserves the right to suspend a Google Account from a particular service, or the entire Google Accounts system, if the Terms of Service or product-specific policies are violated. Google also has the right to terminate your account at any time, for any reason, with or without notice. You may review the Google Terms of Service To review the Picasa Web Albums Program Policies, please visit

If you believe your account has been disabled in error, please contact to describe what happened when your account became disabled."

Of course, that email address just has an automated 'bot which tells you to contact them through their help page.
