On a scale of 1 (tinfoil retard) to 10 (productive member of society), how comfortable are you with Google reading all of your e-mails?

6. At the moment they don't seem to be doing anything particularly uncouth with that data (besides the NSA thing but I can't blame Google for the police state), but the slippery slope argument exists for a damn good reason, and this is an example of it.

Why use Google Mail when you can just host your own e-mail server?
The Internet was originally envisioned as a decentralized network, after all.

9 - even though I refuse to use their service, I know many people do and that directly effects me. But I learned at the early internet that you don't put in an email what you wouldn't put on a postcard.

Not really that bothered since email isn't exactly the most secure thing in the first place.

What is it you're afraid of? More precise targeted marketing?

Unless you cover your body, your computer, and your phone with Stallman grade tinfoil, your ''''privacy'''' has already been well compromised.

9. It's a public email service and email is not and was not meant to be secure to any degree. At the same time it's a bit disconcerting that my emails are being analyzed to generate ads I block anyway.

Email isn't secure so even hosting your own server means that instead of both Google and NSA having access, only NSA will read mail in transit. You can of course use gpg but no one else does, and it does not prevent metadata collection. You need some sort of darknet chat protocol if you want true security and privacy.

10. I'm not retarded, I don't mind a computer reading my email and giving me suggestions which are overall beneficial to me. Moreover, for some reason, I trust Google a lot and I like them and what they do.

Adam Foster

You're a window licking retard if you have any sensitive or illegal information on your gmail account. Any public email server for that matter. Anything you wish to be kept private should be done on your own server or in person.

Tend to trust Jewgle more than other internet companies. That could easily change though.

Never use it for important stuff though.

Gmail doesn't read your emails. The ad service scans your email for keywords then displays relevant content. It is entirely robotic.

10. Don't give shit. I have my mail for no other reason than work, and even then I have my own Outlook Office mail at work as well. Who even uses mail for anything other than confirmation codes and formal shit like work applications, wanting to rent a flat or whatever?

They won't let me keep using them so I had to switch over to hotmail, at least they won't lock me out of my account (so far).

I work in the private sector with security clearance and we still use Gmail and Google Drive to occasionally send secret/top-secret docs. The running gag is Google is more secure than the government, which is pretty true. Google hasn't gotten hacked yet and leaked my SSN, fingerprints, etc. to the Chinese.

Nothing sent over email can be regarded as secure anymore, no matter what lengths you go to. So doing trivial daily business out of your gmail account is just as good as anything else. If google sells all that to marketers I really don't care. I don't do consumerism anyway so good luck selling me anything.
