A number of Google Docs users have reported being locked out of their documents today for, according to the message that pops up when they try to access the affected document, violating Google’s terms of service . Users that have tweeted about the issue have said their locked-out pieces were about a range of topics including wildfire crimes, post-socialist eastern Europe and a response to reviewers of an academic journal submission. FYI according to this thread some Google spam system has gone rogue and is randomly blocking some Google Docs — SwiftOnSecurity (@SwiftOnSecurity) October 31, 2017 Tfw your finalizing a piece on E. Europe post-socialist parties in Google Drive and Google removes it because it’s in violation of its ToS?? — Bhaskar Sunkara (@sunraysunray) October 31, 2017 Working away happily on @googledocs with a response to reviewers. Suddenly: “This document is in violation of Terms of Service”. #WTF — Leighton Pumpkin
