"arbitrarily", "no notification"?
Bug #282470 (locked bug, you had access to it) was the userrel handling,
and they requested your account be locked for one week. The message is
clearly displayed when you login.

If that's "arbitrarily" in your opinion, then really your world-view is
far skew than I had previously thought. There is no great conspiracy.
The government isn't out to get you.

Userrel warned you, and asked me to cut off said access (Bug #285231 for
tracking it, with a due date for next week so that the block gets
removed), I did so this afternoon.

Fine, go and use it. 
That sounds like a royal "we", as I don't think the actual project
members will be joining you.

No. Similar to SourceForge's policy of non-removal, we don't remove
prior work just because it's presently duplicated somewhere else.
