think other way.

imagine you have service with 5000 mail account.

would it be worth for you of extra work of writing all user data, 
analyzing it, storing forever? i don't think so.

now imagine you provide 500000000 mail accounts. no things are different.

you can get billions storing everything and closely working with 
government, and even privates - selling the data raw or processed.

of course not officially, but when talking billions of $ such things, or 
honesty, truth etc. turns to "who cares".

so stay away from ANY services that large. not just gmail, not just mail 
services at all.
