comment How to disable “ [member] asked to join [group]” Facebook notifications?
Facebook wants us to trust it with all our personal information, but refuses to trust that we, as group admins, will regularly check and approve/deny membership requests on our own schedule without constant nagging. Hmm…

comment How do I choose which job is featured on my timeline?
It's great to see this explained, and it does fit with my own experience. Too bad that we can't control it, though. Did Facebook remove an ability to set privacy options on individual positions? I can only set privacy for my "Work and Education" section as a whole.

comment Google Voice and Gmail don't get along, contact-wise?
Just went and checked. Still finding the error, and the "Add" link, and the general antiquity of Google Voice's contact manager, which makes me feel like I'm stuck in 2009.

tempalias is down as of November 2011. Too bad. It looked useful.

I swear that option wasn't there when I first got PI...

comment Return multiple Google search results in same query
I think speeches (obama|clinton|bush) would work better. The grouping tells Google that speeches should be included no matter what.

comment Is any way to pass WebSense?
@Nifle: Presumably. I have a subdomain on my website for the purpose of bypassing stupid filters, but I only use it when the company maintaining the lists blocks something dumb like imgur.com or appspot.com

comment security and google id
These days, developers using an authentication method requiring users to enter their passwords directly into a third-party application or website are a diminishing minority. The user should never have to trust a third-party developer with a password for another service.

comment Which gmail domain names are available?
Correct. The two domains are functionally identical; mail sent to the same username at either domain will arrive in the same inbox.

comment Can I access errors for google apps email routing
I'm not sure I fully understand the problem. Are pick-an-email@domain addresses going to catchall@domain or does pick-an-email stand for one of the "real" addresses?

comment How can I tell if I've already 'liked' a Facebook page?
One could also go on the lack of a "Like" button next to the Page's name.

comment How to export from Google Wave?
I totally missed that sentence, but I guess I'm not the only one judging by the fact that that wave exists. Thanks.

comment Is there a way to see a list of pending friend requests on Facebook?
Thanks for adding the fragment to the link, Senseful. I didn't have any idea how to find that (short of viewing source, and I was short on time).

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.

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.
