This is a little odd. I was reading the Gmail Program Policies and noticed this in the large list of things that users may not do.

Interfere with other Gmail users’ enjoyment of the Service.

That seems sufficiently vague.

If someone sends a message to my Gmail account to tell me I’m fat and it’s pissed me off, does that constitute interfering with my enjoyment? Can I have their Gmail account terminated for doing so?

This reminds me certain food makers who are lame enough to print “enjoy by” instead of “use by” as the label over the freshness date on their food packages.

What if I merely want to eat the food without the pressure of having to enjoy doing so?
