I was just having a conversation via Gmail with a girlfriend who recently lost a pet. We were discussing the very sensitive (or so I thought) subject of cremation, and Gmail decided to helpfully provide the following links through AdSense or whatever annoying program they have spying on your e-mail ("Gmail uses a completely automated process to provide useful information and relevant ads in the sidebar of your Gmail account pages...no humans will read the content of your email in order to target such advertisements or related information." Yeah, right):

Okay, first of all, if I wanted those links, I'd go to Google's homepage and google them, myself. Secondly, it's fucking creepy that they're e-avesdropping on your e-grief, automated program, or no...it's the virtual equivalent of having 32 overzealous cremationists and urn salesmen come crashing through your door as you're still cradling poor Fluffy's cooling, stiffening form and watching her fleas abandon ship.

Callous bastards. This is in very poor taste.

To retaliate, I am now going to start a string of e-mails on the subject of "big purple dongs" and see what pops up.
