IMO there are a few other good things about it.

One, it's run by Google, who seems to be the company with the greatest understanding of the net and the forces that make it work. They're less likely to do something stupid to irritate and annoy you.

Two, I've seen not one spam message in six weeks of operation.

I'm using mine for commercial contact, and it's doing very well for that.

Hmm ... spammers got a hold of my gmail addy about a week ago. I do not, however, get nearly as many spam messages as I did to my Yahoo account when that first got raided. And google's spam filter is excellent, at least this far into it.

Anyone need invites? I got six ... bidding is now open for cash/sexual favors ...

Ha. I just watched Y Tu Mama Tambian, and I love how the woman makes fun of one of the kids for yelling "mamacita" or whatever when he blows it.

And trust me, I myself will be scrambling to the cellar with a big flashing breaking news alert the next time I get laid ...

PM me your emaily.

Wow, I never thought I could profit from squatting on these invites.

Naw, I'll be fair - take yourself out and buy as much alcohol as possible with $10. Here in NYC I could conceivably buy 10 beers, if I make it to the Gowanus Yacht Club before 7 pm tonight.

Sounds like a fair deal I think I'll go buy a six pack of some Blue Moon and a 40oz'er, that should be about $10. How do you send the invite to me? My email is in my profile. Thanks!

I read about a website that's matching up people with invites to people who want to be invited. Go to: http://isnoop.net/gmailomatic.php?PH...391c7ce3e3fcc3
or click here: Isnoop.net Gmail invite spooler

If you have extra invites, you can send them to the spooler, if you want an invite you can sign up at the spooler. Or keep coming here. Whatever.

Quote:
"People with available invites send them to the spooler's address (gmail@isnoop.net), and it automatically adds them to an available pool. People who need addresses can then get invites from this pool, as necessary.

"It's a good place to dump those excess invites, and anybody who needs a GMail invite can pick one up there, easily. Saves time for everybody, really."

No, but maybe you are retarded?

I've been spending ages trying to scores one of those invites. Did it ever cross your mind that I might also have PMed Jinx as well as posted?

Ooooh...there's a thought.

Let's see...am I retarded....hmmmm...difficult question. I'm graduating with a Master of Science degree this December...and I have a 4.0 GPA in my program. No...I guess I'm not retarded.

Do you know what it means to be retarded? Maybe you should ask someone with a real disability. People say stuff like that all the time, but it's not a laughing matter.
