Google's response, or lack thereof

It's been 18 days since Google decided to disable my AdSense account. Having no Earthly idea why they did this, I've followed their instructions and filled out all the forms, wondered aloud about why they might have done this, and postulated that it might be stupidly simple for anyone to cause this to happen to others. It's all been for naught, I'm afraid. Although the dispute form I filled out claimed a 48-hour

It's been 18 days since Google decided to disable my AdSense account. Having no Earthly idea why they did this, I've followed their instructions and filled out all the forms, wondered aloud about why they might have done this, and postulated that it might be stupidly simple for anyone to cause this to happen to others. It's all been for naught, I'm afraid.

Although the dispute form I filled out claimed a 48-hour response time, I've heard nothing from them. I gave them my phone number, email address, carrier pigeon route ID... everything I could think of -- but nary a whisper.

It appears that I have no recourse at this point. None. They've disabled my account permanently, as in a life-time ban -- apparently I'll never be able to use AdSense again for the rest of my days.

They've taken the money earned from my sites in the month or so since I received the only payment they ever sent me, and haven't given me any justification, asked any questions, offered any insight, or made any attempt at contacting me whatsoever.

It's a lot like a mugging.
