One would expect support.google.com to not be geo blocked just like
[email protected] should not be filtered.  That said they can always
disable IPv6 temporarially (or just firewall off the IPv6 instance
of support.google.com and have the browser fallback to IPv4) and
reach support.google.com over IPv4 to lodge the complaint.
