Gmail is too creepy

Gmail is too creepy: "If Google builds a database of keywords associated with email addresses, the potential for abuse is staggering. Google could grow a database that spits out the email addresses of those who used those keywords. How about words such as "box cutters" in the same email as "airline schedules"? Can you think of anyone who might be interested in obtaining a list of email addresses for that particular combination?"

Wow, it's almost as if Google is building a private Carnivore, maybe even without realizing, just like SkyNet :)
