my sugestoin to gmaiial
It's a massive hassle that GMail refuses to send zip files as attachments if they contain executables. It just screwed me again: I built a DLL and tried to mail it to my work account. GMail gave me the finger. This happens to me a lot, and it really gets on my nerves.
I understand that you're concerned about morons screwing themselves and all their friends, and that's a legitimate humanitarian position to take, but some of us are [software] developers. Not only are we well outside the scope of reasonable humanitarian (indeed, human) interest, but it is in fact our job to screw ourselves. GMail would be a handy addition to our self-screwing armamentarium if only it had some kind of "please let me screw myself" checkbox.
