What I despise most about gmail are automatically threaded conversations!! Although this can be easily disabled on a home computer, on mobile platforms -tablets and especially android phones disabling this function/boobytrap can be very difficult, it turns your "conversation" into a kingrat.
A kingrat is where a number of rats confined in a small space, have their tails grow into each other ,until several rats become one. Chaos, cannibalism and death ensue. This is what gmail does when ever I try to forward a email that is enmeshed in a conversation. The only safe solution to using gmail on android phone ,is to look but don't touch.
