I guess it would be OK to use as long as a person didn't use the gmail function. I can't understand why anyone would willingly allow both their incomming and outgoing email to be scanned and parsed, having the derived information remarketed for commercial and other purposes.
Can you imagine all the interesting things the IRS, or the FBI could have with all that information?
Can you imagine if you, were on trial like Scott Peterson and had made inquiries about getting a fishing reel, or buying a boat or even buying a book on fishing? Dang they'd have your whole life history depending on how they arranged the informtion they could use that information to infer anything they wanted to about you.
Besides, why would anyone want all that extra junk mail coming to the house?
