My thoughts exactly when I saw Karl's plea for help to which you
responded.  Sounds like someone created an account for that purpose
only (or ultimately abandoned it for that purpose).  Your only avenue
is an abuse complaint with Google.  Fortunately Google logs IP
addresses during account creation and account access.  So they can
pursue the matter with the ISP or company who owns that IP.  Not sure
what they will require to pursue it to that extent.

What if someone  used a proxy website to create the account?
They can do it as many times as they want. Right?
This has the potential to be a real headache to Karl regardless of whether
he's on the fedora list or not.
