    For a company that makes a living out of Artificial Intelligence, a lot of their actions and policies are super humanly dumb.

    First its advertised that you can access your data on hosted on their "cloud" from anywhere in the world, but when you travel somewhere and try to do just that, they block your account to protect it from suspected hackers using it from abroad.

    Now here is a more ridiculous case where they won't reactivate an account even after they were emailed a copy of the person's ID and driver's license. Simply refusing to offer any explanation of why they did it. All he did wrong was move to a different city!
