The paragraph below is an informative cut and paste of something I found on the outlook express features page. Sure outlook express probably has its equal share of hidden evils. This one just happened to be an interesting fun fact about Gmail. Note the word insensitive… what did someone get for an add to trigger that? Like Nazi memorabilia for sale and they sent it to a Jewish person??? (just a guess)

“If you use Gmail, or send email to someone who does, Google scans the contents of your email and extracts what they think are relevant keywords in order to target you with ads. Sometimes this can give you ads that are inaccurate, inappropriate, or insensitive. Gmail users and recipients are unable to opt-out of the email scanning, keyword extraction, and profiling process.”            -cut & paste from: Features, on Outlook Express
