Facebook suspected my account on account of me using a "fake name" (I wasn't). It took six weeks and two pieces of government-issued photo ID to persuade them that I was really me: the whole time, they kept my account "live" but didn't forward me any messages, so anything my friends sent me just disappeared into a black hole until I got back in.
Then I left Facebook. Like you, it seemed to be "God's Will", or something, that I ought to by that point. I wasn't comfortable knowing that they could - and would - lock me out and assume my identity in the eyes of my friends.
