I get it, it sucks that this happened. But does that make Google Drive "suck"? The author himself states he has used it since the service started - that's what, 6 years? I agree that what happened was unfortunate, but it's a bit immature to go around badmouthing the entire product because of this. It's not like this happens everyday for every single user.

Google Drive started in April 2012. It's been a year and a half, approximately, not 6 years.

He mentions using Google Docs from the start, which eventually became Drive.

The problem he encountered is part of Drive, not Docs.

gDocs has been around for a lot longer
