How is getting results from your own e-mail if you are logged into your G-Mail account public? Your thread title and the Yahoo! news article make it seem as though everyone would see your e-mail in their searches which isn't true...

But the thread title is way more fun. Bash Google.

I think you might have done. I don't see that 'me seeing my emails on the main google results page' implies 'me seeing your emails on the main google results page'. (Assuming both of us actually had gmail accounts).

After all, it's not as if 'the main results page' actually identifies a single page of results that every google user sees.

Yes. Yes you did. You read it wrong and then jumped over here to show us all how evil Google is. Evil google will let me search through my own personal gmail from google.com. Evil google making my life easier.

When I saw "Main results Page" I assumed it to be the public one. I had numerous free e-mail accounts when G-mail came out and have never needed to sign up for any Google services so I didn't make the connection. Sorry.
