A few weeks ago my roommate had to use my computer due to a virus on his. After he was done I noticed he had nearly 3000 emails in his Gmail inbox. Yes, nearly 3000. I know what you're thinking -- how the heck did he let it get so bad? Well, his answer was simply neglect.
Yesterday he whittled his inbox down to less than 30 emails. Unfortunately he forwarded boatloads of 'important' things I needed to read (i.e. jokes, junk). But later on in the day I learned of a great way to clear out your Gmail inbox. It's called The Email Game and it makes it fun to clean up your overloaded inbox. If you've been neglectful in keeping up with your email, check them out -- it looks like a lot of fun!
