Google spams itself

It seems when trouble comes it comes in spades. Some of my favorite service providers are having trouble all at once. Skype, which has worked flawlessly for 2 years (3 maybe?) has had problems seeing its own peer-to-peer (P2P) network today making logins interminable, and now Google, whose Gmail is one of the nicest free apps on the net, has fallen foul of its own spam filter! Trawling through the Gmail spambox looking for mail that shouldn’t be there I found an e-mail sent me from, of all places, the Google Adsense folks.
