layers of disappointment

the inventor of imap is unimpressed with gmail’s support, but consider me way less impressed with the imap protocol itself. some of the ideas are good, but the protocol is just terrible, and the specification is one of the worst things about it (but i have been saying that for years). i am amazed that an http-based mail protocol hasn’t replaced it.
