GMail is spyware

What do you do when your boss, your wife, your child all use gmail, making it impossible to email them without Google spying on it?

It's like "Here, use this free phone. We won't listen in on it, promise. We will just use it to sell information about you and your contacts, or give information about you and your contacts to the Democrats, who would never ever hunt down and murder political opponents."

Google is super-evil.

I suggest https://protonmail.com/ instead.

I'll check out protonmail that does sound like a safer option.

I use Google Voice exclusively for texting people from my PC. More than once a day, I have to shut it down and restart, because it is just sitting there without any input from me in hours, hogging 5+ gigabytes of memory and 25-75% of 4 processor cores' time. This is supposedly a simple-ass text message program that should function fine on a daily budget of KILObytes of memory and i/o.

Yes, it’s weird.

A guy sent me an email about the flight he was coming on.

It magically appeared in my calendar.

I like the idea of protonmail, I used hushmail once with a girl who traveled to China and wanted to keep in touch.
