Gogle Mail Spam
... remember the time when Goggle Mail users accused Google of giving away their info to 3rd party, aka Marketing dings, and Google whore, I meant to say "swore", up and down that no such things occurred?
Well, Google started the new "promotions" tab of GMail to bring unobtrusive ads to users. See, they told the truth when they did not forward users info to marketers
Users can turn off this promotion tad by disabling it. And understanding how Google white-list / black-list what can go thru and not, users can be safe to know that they are on the white list, or black .. depending on how one interprets "disable". Couple notes here, one cannot mark these adverts as spams but one can go to ads preference to block "specific" advertisers that are not on Google internal black / white list
