leaving beta?? (0)

maybe leaving beta, but not beta quality (or rather, alpha quality).
from the firehose:

An anonymous reader writes "Will going abroad kill your gmail account? well, it might just do that. It is apparent google employs account disablement restrictions "for your own security" if it feels your account has been compromised. logging in from china, or eastern europe, might just get you to that state, as it appears. From there, it's a long process to try and prove ownership of the account (do you really remember what month you opened it?). You are further not even guaranteed any kind of response by gmail, and sometimes you just don't get any (e.g. this guy). Would you really trust your e-mail to a service that disables access to your account "for your own protection" without the guaranteed capabilty to convince some kind of human that it is indeed your account? what about the content stored in it, and ownership?"
