Was there notification of removal? If so, what was the reason given?


Was there the opportunity to appeal? If so, did you appeal and what was the response?

No. They ignored me and the hundreds of people who wrote to them in support of my account and work.

What, if any, were the consequences of the removal for you? 

I had a 3 day anxiety attack.
