While I in general agree, some e-mails are created specifically for a specific 
purpose. People who use gmail on these websites for example, may not 
specifically use that e-mail for anything else. Since we're already posting on 
gmail mailing lists, it shouldn't make any difference anyway, google will know 
irregardless of which mail is used here. Though perhaps there is a legal 
difference, maybe? But as long it isn't used outside google systems, then 
having a gmail here shouldn't make much difference. Unless I overlooked 
something? legal element maybe?

It won't be long before A.I. can just scan and analyze the way how people write 
to profile people and identify them. It's essentially the same tech as 
face-recognition software, which many laughed off just a few years back, but 
today is very real. So too is happening to A.I.'s that can identify people by 
how they write. Google is likely no exception here, and irregardless of which 
mail you use, they would probably be able to identify you one way or another if 
you only once slip up and publicize your writing style. It's like a 
fingerprint. The future is scary.
