    I don't know what bothers me more: the fact that some scumbag had the nerve to sell something Google's giving away for free, or that somebody was dumb enough to buy it when it was clearly labelled "FREE".

    I think the latter is the more worrying to be honest!

    I dont think its all too strange.. there are some people willing to do anything to be the first to try out a new technology. Being one of the testers of the new Gmail system has to to be some sort of honor amoung some groups out there...

    Who am I kidding... they are f*****g crazy!!

    Free stuff is sold on eBay every day at an alarming rate. I've seen tons of open source stuff being sold... not to mention people selling online characters.

    BTW TheGAME: edit your post to make the link shorter, because it screws up the view of this sub-forum.

    GMail is not free. In fact, it's not available except to beta testers. What people are paying for is beta-accounts. Some people have enough money and geeky nature to find value in being a GMail beta-tester. Crazy, maybe, but I wouldn't call it stupid.
