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?
