Grrr.. my gmail is down

My gmail hasn’t been working all day…. a reminder that I’m not a customer of theirs, but part of a product! Or perhaps they’ve worked out that that account is associated with someone who has written publicly that he tries to avoid buying things he can remember seeing advertised. No, that’s probably attributing too much like malice, but I’d be surprised if they don’t track how much each user clicks on ad links; to keep a good stream of clicks coming through, it makes sense for them to take more care of accounts that respond to ads.
