I don't killfile merely for posting from Gmail or Google Groups, but
regarding your second point, it has seemed to me for some years now that
Gmail is the new Hotmail, which was the new AOL. Whenever there is an
inane, lazy, mind-numbingly stupid question or post, chances are
extremely high that the sender has a Gmail address.
