How Google obliterated my 4 year old Chrome extension featuring 24k+ users image/svg+xml

After 3 months of trying everything I could think of, I give up. I don’t think I will ever develop anything for the Google ecosystem again. I’m not angry, I’m not doing this out of spite. I just don’t think it is worth it to put any amount of effort to build something on a platform that turned out to be so unreliable.

I’m not sure what to think about the “trademark infringement” stuff, but I totally feel this guy’s frustration at attempting to get in contact with someone at Google. I’ve experienced similar frustrations when my Adsense account was disabled a few years back. At the time, my Adsense earnings paid for my project’s hosting costs, which added up to approx $500 per month. I was given no reasonable explanation for why my account was disabled and my attempts at trying to get in touch with someone at Google were fruitless. It was very frustrating and I felt like I was talking to a Python script. Grr!
