Fw: Google Spamming
- At least Yahoo haven't started this nonsense - yet. There's a petition against it on Care2.com
"If you have a Gmail account, not only is Google reading every email you send and receive, but you might soon see spam ads from Google in your inbox. Google is now deliberately spamming inboxes with ads that look like real emails. Gmail treats these ads like regular email, but you aren't allowed to mark them as spam and Google makes money every time you open these spam ads.
"This is a huge violation of privacy and trust. Tell Google to put a stop to these practices.
"Google reads your personal Gmail messages to target you with these ads. Your email provider should protect you from spam, but Google is doing just the opposite. And even if you don't use Gmail, Google can still read email messages you send to people who do use it and use that information to generate ad revenue."
