comment How to block sites with Google News?
@Hydra your comment led me to test further. It seems that it's a problem with Google multiple sign-in. If I'm signed into more than one account, even though I use the account which has blocked dailymail.co.uk for the news search, the search ignores that setting. The solution is to sign out of all accounts and only sign into the the account which has blocked the site.

comment How to block sites with Google News?
Perhaps it wasn't clear in my question, but I already tried this. The site is "manually blocked" in that list, but News still shows its articles in the feed.

comment How do you share a Facebook photo album with people that don't want to register for Facebook?
@HoogstudentengildeDeWesp that is a different problem. I want to share my wedding pics with a cousin who is not on Facebook and won't be signing up.

@phwd what is the sharing option you put on those albums? I have groups defined in my profile and limit access to certain groups. Maybe it has something to do with sharing options?

@Alex it may not be a bug. It may be that Facebook simply now force people to sign up to view the album.

@phwd I tried the "With timeline" process again just now. If I open the link that I get in Step 7 with a Chrome incognito window (no cookie for Facebook login), the link wants me to sign up for facebook. I'm downvoting until someone clarifies.

comment Gmail, how to forward email to group using a filter
+1 for explaining the steps. I'd say that a Google Group is better than an autoforward address because users can "unsubscribe" (if they don't belong to the voluntary tax syndicate anymore).

is it a group address (e.g., lottogroup@example.com) or are you trying to specify multiple addresses?

comment How can I delete my Facebook posts from an open group where I'm no longer a member?
Another route: ask one of the other members to become the admin and add you to the group so you can delete those posts. If the current admin is defunct, anyone can assume that role. "If you're a member of a group with no admins, you can become an admin by clicking Make Me Admin under Members in the right column." from facebook.com/help/121869921229278

Are you sure your posts are visible to others? Try the "view your timeline as..." to get to the postings? Otherwise, you could report the group, claiming it's harassing you (admin is inactive, won't re-add you to allow you to delete posts). There's an option in the sequence of screens to "Report to facebook" and the final step allows you to "Receive an email from facebook after the report is handled." (or something like that)
