In terms of the issue, this is how it breaks down:
2. When it's my competitor's ad showing in my emails, this is horrible and has to be stopped.
3. There is tremendous potential for abuse by Google. Even if you trust the current Google administration, eventually someone else will be running things and they may not be trustworthy. But then again, your private data is already in the wrong hands. (Imagine the "sensitive" info msn or yahoo has if they want to read personal emails).
4. Google didn't let me join the beta testing. This is awful. GMail must be stopped.
5. Google let me in on their beta testing. They are good guys. We need to support them.
6. As bad (or good) as all of the above is, if Gmail "solves" spam, the vast majority of us will use it and be thrilled about it.
7. It's amazing how quickly our government managed to attack Gmail, even before it's released, and how paltry their efforts after a decade, to eliminate spam. If you want to be cynical, you can send her a letter asking if what's bothering her is that GMail is taking care of spam and some of her constituents benefit from spam? (Just kidding. Maybe.)
