And here I thought I was the only one to seriously consider blocking gmail (to and from) because of the security implications.
As for the invites, I find it interesting just how many folks have been taken in by their very clever marketing scheme that's gotten lots of smart people to spamvertise gmail (and orkut for that matter). I agree with Paul Vixie in not seeing the attraction at all.
