A lot of people are clamoring to get Gmail invites (examples: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5) and use Google’s 1GB web email service, but many of them aren’t looking at the dark side of Gmail, which is pretty dark indeed. Gmail-Is-Too-Creepy.com is a site the tells you about the dangers of Gmail and their policies. After reading it, I’m pretty set on not replying to anyone with a Gmail account, and I also hope those who do have it don’t send me emails from their Gmail account in the first place. I don’t see what the big deal is. 1GB is nothing these days with hard drives with lots of space quite cheap, why not keep all your saved mails on your own computer, where it belongs?
