Ever since they launched it without a Delete button, the folks at Google have been trying to convince Gmail users to archive their mail instead of trash it.

It’s true that with all that storage space, there’s really no reason to delete anything in Gmail. I lean on the Y key a lot more than the Delete button, but what about you?
