And then the Android "community" was all like...

Unfortunately, this happened to me recently: "_Your Google Play Developer account has been terminated due to multiple policy violations by this or associated accounts._".

REASON FOR TERMINATION: Multiple violations of the Content Policy and Developer Distribution Agreement

Now, I suspect this is because I used the term "Android Wear" in the description of my recent applications, most of the times to explain that the applications were only for android wear (people ending rating 1 star because they did not see the app on their handheld since it was for Android Wear).

This happened one day after I pushed a free Reversi for Android which received a removal notification: REASON FOR REMOVAL: Violation of the spam provisions of the Content Policy. and which I reuploaded with a 1 line description to avoid any issue. I also updated the description of another Wear app (Advanced Wear Visualizer) including troubleshooting and asking to open the "Android Wear" app on your handheld and "Resync all" from the settings if the application was not visible on the watch.
It looks like I received a ban hammer trying to help my users.

+Wayne Piekarski If you remember, you even saw (and replied to me) that I proposed my help to clean this community from spam in a previous post (happens almost daily with watchfaces which even infringe copyright of famous brands).

I am feeling distraught right now about what I can do since it is final after automated appeal rejection. However I read stories (but indeed I am just a little indie developer, not cyanogen or others big groups) where few succeeded at re-establishing their account.

Of course, if someone from +Google or close enough could help to reinstate my +Google Play account, I engage myself to keep the description as minimalist as possible, remove any Android words, etc. +Larry Page +Ellie Powers +Android Developers  +Romain Guy +Derek Ross +Artem Russakovskii
