Default Verizon moto g has a locked bootloader

So it seems that the bootloader is locked just as it is on the verizon moto x. I tried using the official unlock method and the page said my device isn't eligible to be unlocked.

And why would you think that anyone would release a phone with a preunlocked bootloader?

I didn't. Motorola made it really easy to unlock the bootloader on the gsm moto x and moto g. But that unlock method didn't work on the Verizon moto x, and it seems it doesn't work on the Verizon moto g either. The Verizon moto x's boot loader was never unlocked, and it seems that the moto g will face the same fate.
