So I’m sitting on this GMail account (common nickname dot last name at gmail.com), and damn if I know what to do with it. I mean, I’ve got two nice-sized IMAP accounts. I’ve got up to four hundred 50 MB POP3 accounts at irrsinn dot net. I’ve got webmail access at all of the above. And now I have GMail.
I don’t need another secret/personal account that I carefully distribute to keep away the spammers. See above about those four hundred POP3 accounts at this here domain. I have, and can make, sufficient e-mail addresses related to this site. I have junk mail accounts. I have accounts that only receive newsletters and mailing lists. I have accounts that I use when I’m registering things, and accounts I use(d) when doing college/testing/financial aid sign-ups.
Why yes, I do prefer to use different accounts rather than a bunch of “folders” in a single account. How could you tell?
While I am interested in how Google has set this system up and where it will go in the future, I just can’t think of a use for me to have the account, since I like the clear divisions in my accounts.
Maybe I’ll go and sign up for mad amounts of p0rn using the address to see how the targeted ad system responds.
