You can do it yourself

Go to this page. Click on the green button. Problem solved. Your profile will (after a while) be set to public again.

Same thing happend to me today. Suddenly my account is private and locked.

You say above that this is to weed out the dormant accounts - bit my account was never dormant. I have been applying for Jobs every single day since I joined and even have a few interviews - but alas no work as yet.  A lot of difference to a dormant accoutn which may see some activity for a few days and then nothing.

So we need a better explanatin as to why our accounts are private and locked , even after buyig connects every week and being a plus member ( not any more as I do not see the benefit of paying $14.99/month)

Not really. An account that doesn't earn any money is an account that doesn't earn any money.

 

The good news is that even if your profile is set to private, clients you send proposals to still see your profile the same as before. You are simply not appearing in searches.

 

It is also free and takes mere seconds to request your profile to be set to public again.It is literally a couple of mouseclicks. Go to this page. Click on the green button. Problem solved. Your profile will (after a while) be set to public again.

 

It really isn't anything to get excited or all bent out of shape about.

As an alternative to clicking that green button, you could claim that you are going to file a class action lawsuit.
