Wow wow, you keep tagging me, ha ha. I am critical in all toots about this whole shebang. Think the others there just as much :D
@aral and even if they were 100% independent I wouldn't want them to adopt AP, just for the attention that would raise in the corporate world.

For me, the one thing that really makes gmail practically indispensable is that it handles the spam filtering very well.
