Google has decided to more aggressively snatch users who are still using Hotmail and Yahoo by launching an Email Intervention site.

The site, which features intervention specialist, Dr. Richard Muscat, provides you with the ability to log in using your Google credentials, automatically detect friends not using a Gmail and offering you to send them an intervention letter so as to encourage them to make the switch to a "less embarrassing email address".

The whole thing is cute. And downright creepy when you think about it for too long.
