Skimmed the article, saw that he reccomended using Googlemail. Looked at the title of the post again. Looked at Googlemail reccomendation. Laughed and made a mental note not to trust "Troy Hunt".

Maybe try reading the article instead of skimming. He mentions options to Gmail if you don't want to deal with them.

Pro tip: don't comment if you've just "skimmed the article".

Hi, I'm Troy McLure. You may remember me from such articles as "Beans: The Forgotten Fruit" and "Making your Millions on Mt. Gox".

What is wrong with using gmail if you are following all the other safeguards he suggests (VPN, false identity, etc.)?
