comment How do I cancel a friend request on Facebook?
Inconvenient because you have to remember the name of the person (and they might have changed it in their profile), but outside of an app it's about the only way.

comment How do you take ownership of your comments?
Definitely a good thread for me to see. I thought co.mments.com was dead, but apparently it's back and kicking.

comment How can vote averages be weighted to prevent 'gaming'?
I was about to bring up their "new" (it's old by Internet standards) algorithm but you beat me.

comment Gmail & Google Docs: Paste just the text, not the formatting (Firefox, Safari)
Ah, right. I'll look in the CSS to see how that's done; it's a very neat effect. Thanks.

comment How does Gmail decide to thread email messages?
I've seen it break between 60 and 80, so I'm not sure how reliable that article is. But it's close.

Sorry if this is off-topic, but I'm curious how you created the "key" look.

comment How can I set a Gmail filter that finds email sent “only to me”?
I believe the second example should be to:me -to:*. However, the search doesn't seem to exclude messages sent to a list of addresses.

comment Getting the 140 Twitter character limit to reset itself after url shorten
That's a good process. I prefer to have shortened URLs associated with my bit.ly account rather than with Twitter's so I can manage them all in one place.

comment How do I unlink my Youtube account from my gmail account?
Google is moving toward having all YouTube accounts become Google Accounts (can't recall the source, but I saw a news article somewhere). Even if you could unlink, it might not be long before you'd be forced to relink.

comment Shortcut key to delete single mail in a thread in Gmail
No keyboard shortcut exists to delete a single message. (Gmail seems wired to try and keep people from thinking of anything but "conversations".)

comment Facebook is slow to post imported sites like Delicious and Google Reader
The FriendFeed acquisition was mostly about the team behind the product, unfortunately. Facebook has integrated some FriendFeed-like features into its own site since the acquisition, but for the most part it seems that the former FriendFeeders have been put to work on other projects. Too bad, really; FF had a wonderful engine for pulling feeds.

comment Can I specify labels on sent mail in GMail?
How would one go about doing so? I don't think I have the reputation score necessary to accomplish that. But then, this question appears to have an accepted answer that differs from the top-scoring answer on the other one... Maybe that's a good reason to keep it around, for the perspective.

comment What can a web app do with my Twitter account if I use Twitter to login to that service?
Twitter only seems to have a "deauthorize" option. I wish they allowed users to grant and revoke specific permissions. That's something at which Facebook Platform is halfway decent.
