I (a) strongly concur with this and (b) will add that this sentiment
also applies to MSN/Hotmail, Yahoo, and, sadly [1], AOL.


[1] Why "sadly"?  Because some years ago Carl Hutzler and his team managed
to fight an uphill battle against AOL management apathy and cluelessness,
and made significant progress toward the goal of making AOL's mail
service a quality operation.  AOL welcomed this success by dismissing
the entire team and the slide back into incompetence and negligence began
almost immediately.  Not that I agreed with everything Carl et.al. did,
because I didn't; but I recognized that they had good intentions and
they worked hard.  To see all that effort discarded is appalling.
