This is the second time this has happend in my 2 weeks of using GM
scripts. The first time happend the day after I installed GM
Gmail-related scripts. I turned them off until a day or two ago and
was just locked out again. Therefore after using Gmail for probably
over a year, I've never been locked out when GM scripts were not
No weird emails, no other interaction with their service, etc.
Here are the Gmail scripts I had activated:
Gmail delete button
I have no idea which is causing the issue and don't have time to
analyze it since I'm in the middle of finals. For now I've just
turned them off.
