Bacn for Gmail

Guess all of us are used to deleting those news alerts, Orkut/Facebook alerts, stuff from mailing lists… in order to keep a clean and relevant mailbox.

I often wondered why Gmail didn’t provide an option for ‘Friendly Spam’ – stuff that you don’t want marked spam totally, but stuff you don’t want cluttering your inbox.

Apparently, there’s a term to describe such mail – Bacn.

So.. what do we do with bacn? How do we deal with it? We need a holding mechanism for it… a folder or something, whose contents autodelete after you’ve seen it once? What else can we do with bacn?

  1. maybe you can filter the message and let it skip the inbox, file it under another label or delete it altogether!
