Is GMAIL Sending Conservative Emails to Spam?

I really don’t know why I have seen a sudden uptick in the number of good emails that are going to my Google Mail spam box. I send most of my emails through Gmail because the amount of spam I get is incredible and the Gmail filters were the best I had found.

I might have seen about 1% false positives in the last few years that I have been using Gmail. But the number has skyrocketed and I am now seeing 20% or so false positives and oddly, almost all of the incorrectly identified email is from Republican and Conservative sources.

I admit I receive a large number of right leaning emails, but I am on almost as many Democrat lists that help me keep up with the “other side”. They NEVER go to my spam box.

Perhaps it’s a quirk. Or maybe it’s a case where there is some type of coordinated effort on the left to sign up for right leaning emails and then report them as spam to get then erroneously sent to spam and ignored.

Then there is the possibility that Google, which is hardly Conservative friendly, has tweaked their spam filters a bit.

Whatever the reason, I have been spending a lot of time lately adding a “Do not send to spam” filter to messages in my spam queue.

Anyone else noticing this?

Just make sure you check your spam box often. I now have to.

    I check the spam filter daily, and yeah, some get caught in it. I haven’t noticed a pattern. But oddly, when Newt dropped out of the race, his emails stopped going to the spam filter.

  2. Ben Shulman says:

    Yes, I also notice this, though my volume of mail of all kinds is low. Does anyone know of a link or address at Google at which to complain?

    Yep, all my Romney and Republican emails get sent to spam, despite my marking them not spam. Unless there’s a concerted effort by gmail to dump on conservatives, I assume lefty creeps who get the email mark them as spam and if sufficient numbers of them do so, the service filters them all as spam.

    Quite the opposite. ALL of my dem leaning mail gets sent to junk and all of my conservative mail is left in place!

    Yup! I’m noticing same thing. I’ve been using gmail from just a month now, and it’s throwing all my conservative email into spam. Of course, it’s throwing everything that is not from a “Person” into spam…so maybe it’s just trying to learn my preferences. But I do get sick of telling gmail over and over the SAME emails aren’t spam. It only seems to be repeat offending when it comes to conservative emails.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
