Google blocking account

Quite an extreme measure for misplaced ‘post’, even if ordered by a court. I am unsure we would have acted identically had post mail been used. I don’t see a court order for a citizen not to receive his mail until further notice. Is it because of the ease with which one can block e-mail accounts that we resort to such extreme measures?
