Paying for GMail?

What is the attraction of GMail? That it is 1 Gig of free space, with Google's tools. Free. Paying 2 bucks for it on eBay is a bit ridiculous, especially when with a little patience you can get one for free. What is the point? Someone is making money off of people who are excited enough about GMail to go and actually buy an account like Google *doesn't* want to ask them to do. That someone has my congratulations though - actually, those some people do. They figured out that people were going to get caught up enough in the moment to actually perform that feat of rather lacking intelligence and buy an account. So to those who are making money - kudos. To those who are helping them - < sigh > Just think through it better next time...
