You lose nothing by talking with Google first.
In some instances yes, but when they respond to you as a child and tell you don't ever contact them again, well it kind of throws that whole honesty thing out the Window doesnít it?
In my case, I was running ads for an affiliate site before it was known that Google didnít like that stuff. I stopped running them and let the domain go when it came up for renewal. Google then told me I had to clean up the domain even though I no longer owned it. Said it was my problem then promptly cancelled the account and sent an email saying donít ever contact them again.
This was years ago and Iíve moved on from Google as they just keep getting more evil every day.
