comment Can I use Google Voicemail with a landline number?
I think the only thing you might be able to do is to increase the number of rings on the landline so that GV has a chance to pick up the call. (Or, better, don't use the voicemail provided by CenturyLink.) That's assuming, of course, that CenturyLink has a voicemail system.

comment Deleting Dropbox files from PC, phone, and web
That is odd. In my experience, Dropbox is rather good at managing that sort of thing. How are you deleting them? Just select, then File > Delete? Are you deleting a large number of files? Certainly deleting them from the web is an option. I'd experiment a bit.

comment Stuck message when signing onto facebook
I wonder if this is related to the new Privacy Checkup. Are you using the app or just accessing via the web browser? If the latter, I suggest using a desktop browser to at least get past that alert.

comment why cant i see or send any messages
I'm afraid that there's really not enough information here for us to help you. What do you see? Does the rest of the Facebook app work? Are you getting an error? What browser are you using?

comment Why are emails from a Google Group getting automatically deleted by Gmail?
Since you say the messages appear in your inbox for an instant before disappearing, I think you need to look at one of those clients doing things to your messages.

comment Why are emails from a Google Group getting automatically deleted by Gmail?
If Google was marking them as spam they'd end up in your "Spam" folder. Gmail doesn't just delete messages arbitrarily. Could some other filter be acting on them? Are you using any sort of third-party tool with your Gmail?

This would seem to be an Apple issue and would be better off on Ask Different.

comment Labeling everything that is auto-forwarded from a (non-Gmail) account
This is one of the main reasons we say you shouldn't cross-post. This was (correctly) migrated from Super User, and now it's a duplicate of the question you already asked here.

This is an Excel and/or OS issue, not a bit.ly issue. You should ask this at Super User.

This question appears to be off-topic because it is about a bug which has since been fixed.

While not strictly off-topic, I think your question is better suited to Webmasters.

comment Disabling Facebook event notifications on mobile phone
You're asking about notifications, so you must be using a native app. You would probably be better off asking about the app on the appropriate site for your OS: Android Enthusiasts, Ask Different, or Windows Phone.

comment Google Calendar Quick Add with end time
Well, that's perturbing. I tried several different permutations and they all went to my default 1 hour length, as you saw. Even the alternate method (i.e., [Running w/ Pat 2:15 tomorrow for 45 minutes]) doesn't work. Looks like a bug.

Only Google can answer this. Krebs on Security discusses this at length with his own speculation.
