Sorry for disturbing you, but I've got a special case. The case is - my ex-friend lead my paid lj-account created 7 years ago to suspend, and other lj (husband, mom, sister) also have been suspended.
 
The story shortly: we live together with that friend, and she had decided to create a new lj, and did it. We used her old account to play with mail list and some other purposes, deleted all entries, changed passwords to learn how to manage primary emails. Ealier she had given me her password and let do what I want with this account. But after 1,5 year passed, we quarreled, she wrote abuse report, that I was a hacker. She had all the time access to all her primary emails - I didn't change them ever. An all accounts with my mail - I created them for newcommers, they were all suspended. About 20-30 accounts. 

I'm not a hacker, and didn't do anything like that, I'm a grown up woman with husband and children, my account was very nice - you can see it, stories, flowers, photos, it didn,t harm anybody and thousands of people read it. I paid for this account. If I had been a hacker, that ex-friend would wrote report not now, but in 2005 or 2006, when we played with that acc. But she did it a month ago, only to kill all my activity at LJ. Shae has a new account for  year and loves it.

 
I wrote using a form, but AT doesn't want to clear anything. I never disturbed anybody, posted flowers and nobody wrote reports about me. And now I can't even create a new account, and all my family cannot.

Please, help. If you can't help me, help my husband, who is a writer and who approcieted his account very much. He doesn'd want a new one. And my sister - her account helped her to bit anorexia nervosa, but now she doesn't have anybody to ask an advice.

I can promise, I would never enter other people accounts, when they ask it.

Sorry for bad English, it's not my native language.

If I'm understanding correctly, you and your friend shared an account, but when you and your friend got into an argument she decided to tell Abuse you hacked into her account without permission. Is that the only thing she told Abuse you did?

That doesn't explain why the 30 accounts you had were suspended. Did your friend say those 30 accounts were hers? Is she claiming she is suok?

Did Abuse tell you why they don't want to reinstate your accounts?

I'm not sure why you had 30 accounts. Were you pretending to be other people with some of the other accounts?

Sorry for the questions but I can't figure out why you had so many accounts and why Abuse has banned your IP so that your relatives can't even get on LJ anymore.

>>>I'm understanding correctly, you and your friend shared an account, but when you and your friend got into an argument she decided to tell Abuse you hacked into her account without permission. Is that the only thing she told Abuse you did?
YES

>>That doesn't explain why the 30 accounts you had were suspended. Did your friend say those 30 accounts were hers? Is she claiming she is suok?

I created many accounts for my fiends, relatives, collegues - my email was among email lists. My virtuals also were among them. suok - it was me.

>>Did Abuse tell you why they don't want to reinstate your accounts?

They say they think I was a great hacker

>>I'm not sure why you had 30 accounts. Were you pretending to be other people with some of the other accounts?
Only 2 I was pretending, questions about sex and gynecology, you know. Oyjers - are othre people. I can list all nicknames.

>>Sorry for the questions but I can't figure out why you had so many accounts and why Abuse has banned your IP so that your relatives can't even get on LJ anymore.
It's ok, I hope, the LJ team will clear the situation.

I'm not an Abuse member but I believe some Abuse members do read this community. I was hoping I could give you some suggestions but it sounds like they think all the suspended accounts are yours because they all had your name and/or email on them.

If your ex-friend's old account was created in her name and you did go in and delete all her entries, she can claim it was without her permission and get you in trouble. She may have given you permission previously but if she's lying now, I'm not sure what can be done about it, unfortunately, because there's no proof that she gave you the permission to play around with her old account.

If Abuse has made their final decision you may not have any recourse. Maybe you could offer to provide Abuse with some documentation to prove that your husband's account was his and not yours?

You may just have to create all new accounts. Since you were able to create this account called ask_abuse, it looks like you can create new accounts, and that may be your only option at this point.

If you do create new accounts, make sure your husband's has a different name and email than yours does. Same with your mother's and your sister's. Also, I wouldn't share passwords around because this kind of thing happens often.

I'm sorry that all this trouble happened with your ex-friend. Good luck!

Thanks! AT said I'm not allowed to create any accounts at LJ ever? imagine. EVER! ask_abuse will be suspended soon, believe me. I've tried.
What I can proove? Books? Passport? Driving license? There's no nickname.

This is so typical. Abuse has no idea what they're doing.

I had the same problem except here's one bit of proof, the other account has this account's email set as an authorized user. I'm still waiting on him.

Update: They are not going to give it back to me.

Honestly, I've read that ToS up and down several times and I have not done one thing to break them. I did no hacking or anything of the sort. I had requested a pw reset as was in my authority as my email had been listed as an authorized user and then changed the name later on with my own money when it was in my possession. Not one thing was a hack or anything of the sort...and all for a blank journal that had only once had content which was of my own creation. I honestly hope someone brings LJ down one day.
