Hi Michael,

Colleagues have pointed me to an escalation path internally at Google; I've
filed one, and pointed back to this email thread.

It's not clear whether one specific thing changed that can be reverted -
Google's anti-abuse team is constantly evolving their strategies for
detecting automated attacks.

I can't promise anything, but hope that the team will follow up here, and
that together a solution can be found.

I support flexible work schedules, and I’m sending this email now because
it is within the hours I’m working today.  Please do not feel obliged to
reply straight away - I understand that you will reply during the hours you
work, which may not match mine. (credit: jparent@)
