Forums Members,

I was just wondering have anyone every got their account closed, shutdown or banned for no reason at all. There have been people I have talked to who have had problems like this, which is very sad. These are people who have ran their businesses online, weather it was an eBay store ect..

I will love to know weather anyone here, has been missed used by these services in this way or another?
If so! I will love to hear your story.

I have been banned for life for making a mistake

I mistakenly used paypal on a website that got me banned, not for what I was selling, but because the website is adult oriented. What I was selling didn't really violate their AUP, but now I've also had an account I use for a non-profit to be closed as well and paypal even informed me that if my wife tried to open and account because she's on the shared IP address we use, she would be banned for life. This is the equivalent of being banned for life from driving after you got a parking ticket.

There was this one time, when I used gmail to store my personal and business files and mails when something went down on their system. If i recall it correctly that was February this year or something. Anyway, had to wait for google to fix gmail and luckily it got fix. Now back to business. Happy

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
