Hugely important decision taken without Gmail users

11-12-12

A MASSIVELY important thing was decided yesterday while Gmail users were offline.

Not telling Gmail users what was decided was part of the decision

The thing, which will affect everything else forever, was decided in just under an hour during a series of email exchanges involving everybody.

But experts say that because the decision did not involve Gmail users there is a very strong chance the thing that was decided will be in the interests of every single person alive, except Gmail users.

Professor Henry Brubaker, of the Institute for Studies, said: “At every key stage of yesterday’s decision-making process I sent out an urgent email asking Gmail users for their input.

“I received no replies and therefore assumed they were okay with it. I found this very surprising given the nature of the thing that has now been decided.

“I must admit, I kept thinking, ‘if I was a Gmail user I would absolutely not want this to be the decision and I am surprised they are not sending me emails filled with anger and abject terror’.”

He added: “Oh well, what’s done is done. As everybody, except Gmail users, decided yesterday, there is no going back on this decision.

“In fact, we all decided that would be impossible.”

Nikki Hollis, a Gmail user, said: “Why are all my friends emailing me to ask if I’ve decided who’s going to get my iPhone?”
