    If someone gets your gmail password, you're dead meat. They can
    1) change your secondary email address to their own
    2) log out
    3) say 'forgot my password'
    4) get the email to email like 10 times
    5) change email address back and make it look like nothing ever happened

    I know cause I did this to someone :D

    What happens is that you lose all your privacy. Each 'lost password' email allows them to change your email address password. Though they cant find your password, they will be able to change it for the next 30 days. Chances are they will resend the form to themselves.

    So never give out your gmail password! ON ANY ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!
