I'm familiar with Inbox Zero and use similar practices myself, even
before I knew about it explicitly (thanks to the great gonzo again),
but it looks like Just Flippin' Do It has a *really* small threshold
under both systems there.  That's understandable, else we'd never get
out of our inboxes.

Is creating accounts really now a sub-two-minute task? If so, that's
great, but I believed there was still often a lot of multi-step
independent double-checking in that task.
