As a Gmail user, the requirement to use Gmail on some sites has not bothered me.  If those same sites insisted I use another Email, I would avoid those sites. I think a site loses out by insisting on the use of any specific contact email.

It's not because it makes the database look pretty with a list of gmail addresses listed. It costs an enormous amount of server juice to send email to a bunch of these: yahoo, hotmail, msn, live.com, gmx, avg?, yandex, comcast, aol, and many many others that like to get you to signup to sell to you (it's not some favor).... but then block your emails without you know it.

I even signed agreements with hotmail to allow email ads, but nooooooooooo they allow it for a couple days and then they still do it.

On the owner side, it bounces back to us. Repeatedly into the hundreds or so, and it keeps trying to email those again and again. Using more server juice. Then we go buy an even more expensive server, just to handle it. I think its now to the point they NEVER let the emails though unless you send like, 50 a month.

Why should we keep spending more and more money (into the 100's a month) because of people not wanting to use an email address that doesnt torment the server and monthly bill? I am very close on insisting the use of gmail on my sites because I already pay over 500 a month and not willing to pay more just to accommadate the use of these free email boxes doing this underhanded stuff.

Yea to be more specific, they will not even tell you they have blocked something because they do not put it in any spam or junk folder.. they just completely block it so you don't see it anywhere. With Gmail if something doesn't get delivered to your inbox it is always at least in the Spam folder.

I think it may have more to do with wanting to have verifiable email addresses than spam boxes. With services like gmail, they know their messages will get through vs. spam boxes that will auto delete or not get them at all. Just a thought.
