Only reason why Google Groups would terminate your name is if you
were a member.  There is no violation of their service if you
never were a member, which tells me that someone must have
attempted to register your name under a G-mail account.  However,
it is amusing to note how often trolls have violated the following:


6. Appropriate Conduct

You agree that you are responsible for your own conduct and
communications while using the Service and for any consequences
thereof. You agree to use the Service only to send and receive
messages and material that are legal, proper and related to the
particular Group. By way of example, and not as a limitation, you
agree that when using the Service, you will not:

    * defame, abuse, harass, stalk, threaten or otherwise violate
the legal rights (such as rights of privacy and publicity) of others;

Gary and the clogwog perp come to mind.

    * post any inappropriate, defamatory, infringing, obscene, or
unlawful Content; [...]

Same violators.

    * impersonate another person or entity, or falsify or delete
any author attributions, legal or other proper notices or
proprietary designations or labels of the origin or source of
software or other material contained in a file that is Posted;

Same violators, who steal nyms.
