Google Taking Cues From ClearContext Again?

This morning I read with great interest downloadsquad’s post on Gmail’s new mute feature:

“If you’re subscribed to a mailing list,” says Google’s help page, “you’ve no doubt been subjected to the ‘thread that just won’t die!’ If you’re part of a long message conversation that isn’t relevant, you can ‘mute’ the conversation to keep all future additions out of your inbox.”

It is always rewarding to see ClearContext features validated by one of the big email providers.  Though, as Deva points out on Email Dashboard, it was really Omar Shahine’s suggestion that led us to build Unsubscribe from Thread in the first place.
