I actually stopped using it too after your post. I guess I am going to leave GV to something I do on PC.
Go to work, send your kids to school, follow fashion, act normal, walk on the pavement, watch t.v., save for your old age, obey the law, don't ask questions, and repeat after me.....I am free.
honestly it should be alright you probally had some random error now that you sbfed you should be good to go just clockwork a backup of liberty and try google voice again just to test if the problem arises again.
I don't use Custom ROMs. Every custom ROM I've seen has issues of some sort or another. I won't say my rooted stock Droid is perfect, but it gives me all the benefits I want from rooting without having somebody's idea of an OS in it.
While I can't comment on whether or not Custom ROM's are responsible for bricking a phone, I can tell you that the bootstraps or Clockwork have an issue. I've tried to go back to stock using recovery and it was a mess. I had to sbf to get back to stock and get my phone working good again.
And one last thing. Bricked is a word that's tossed around a lot. Your phone isn't truly bricked unless you can't turn it on at all.

I had a similar problem on my original Droid, around the time I was switching back and forth between the Simply Stunning and the most recent Cyanogen ROMs. While on Cyanogen, I was leaving work and my volume started going up, as if the button was being held down. It kept doing this for about an hour. I got home from work and my phone was frozen on a black screen. Reboot would show the load screen and then revert to the black screen. I couldn't get into bootloader either. Strangely, I hit the thing a few times out of frustration while it was frozen and it started right up
All was for naught however, since a few days later the "c" on the keyboard acted as if being held down, which on any homescreen immediately opened google search and went "cccccccccc...." as fast as I could delete it. It obviously did the same in any app where text entry was possible, rendering the phone useless. That's pretty much why I upgraded. [/pointless vent]
Summary: I hit my angrily struck my black-screened, seemingly-bricked phone like a disobedient servant and it worked again, a little. Haywire phones are haywire.
