That's why I do not like Google Mail. As we Russians say, "if you can
see free cheese, beware: this usually means there is a mousetrap".As for
me, Google collects too much private data.And even if Google is "not
evil", when it comes that Big Brother asks to share some data, it is
hard or impossible to deny such request. Google already had some issues
with this. So, free cheese is cool but actually it often has high price
hidden a bit. Each mouse knows this but not each and every human does
:).It is interesting, does someone still remembers that privacy is still

I'm do not care about google mail. However it is quite strange that when
I'm about to reply, there is actual message author in To: and mailing
list in CC: in my Thunderbird.As for me, this is inconvienient. IMHO,
list address should be in "from" header by default, isn't it?
