Reports are coming in about some Google Docs that are being mysteriously locked, indicating "This item has been flagged as inappropriate and can no longer be shared."

Surely, a bug.

From the linked article:
Some people have also reported that another error prevented them from sending Google appeal requests to unlock their files.
