Submission + - Gmail users howl over Halloween outage (theregister.co.uk) 1

An anonymous reader writes: Gmail has been completely down for a large number of users (including me) for 36 hours straight, though Google refuses to acknowledge any problem. I linked to an early article in the Register about this, which reports that service is down even for many users who paid for the $50 Premier service, and that Google isn't answering its tech support line (which is advertised as being 24/7). Here's a support forum

where users from all over (incl. Denmark, Israel, South Africa) are reporting the problem and commiserating. No one from Google seems to be listening — indeed, Google's Apps Status Dashboard

still reports "No Issues" with Gmail.
