Gmail is having intermittent outages today but when i saw the below page my heart sank thinking they had suspended my account. The message is so personal:
We're sorry but your Gmail account is temporarily unavailable.
Seems innocent enough until you start thinking, what if it is my account only? Have I been banned, am I being penalized for some unknown behaviour, or just my technical issue number was up? What then, who'll help me?
Pretty scary when most of life is lived online where it can be yanked away from one in a moment with no recourse.
Fortunately, judging by the tweets, I wasn't a lone target today. I still belong 🙂
