GMail increasing number of invites

Today I was very surprised to see that one of my Gmail accounts had 50 gmail invites. I had at most 6 invites every 2 months or so before. I quickly checked 3 other accounts and i found that each had 50 invites. That made an awesome total of 200 invites !!!!.

I think it wont be long now before GMAIL finally gets public and the invitation era comes to an end. Although there is some bugs still left , for example now for sending the invites no need to enter the first and last name of the person you want to send it to , you just insert his/her email address. However when the person accepts your invitation you get an email confirmation from gmail directly starting with "has accepted your invitation to Gmail..." . The name of the person is not displayed , they forgot to change the email template for confirmation.

These are minor bugs which need to be catered for before shifting out of its Beta version into official release. However its still the best email service on the planet.
