Yep. That's why I refuse to have a google account, and why I recommended
against it for business use. I have no knowledge, but even if you pay
google for a "private" business account, I have next to no trust that they
do not have something scanning for info to sell, or market to - we all
*know* they do that to all free email accounts.

"First, do no harm"? Long gone, eaten by their marketing dept, which is
why the signal-to-noise ratio has gone *way* down in the laft five years.

I'll stop the rant now, too, it's OT for the list.
