How It Works
Make a pledge to keep your inbox within some limit. Break your pledge once, shame on you. Break your pledge again, and you'll need to put your money where your mouth is.
Every day, make sure you reduce your number of Read messages. We won't count Unread messages against you so don't worry if more messages come in. (Details on our blog.)
Keep following Beeminder's Yellow Brick Road to gradually whittle your inbox down. Once you get to Zero, we keep checking on you so you don't spiral back out of control.
