comment List Gmail conversations where last reply is not from me
This is the opposite of the problem described here: Manage un-replied GMail conversations Perhaps some of the suggestions there could also work for you.

comment VNC Viewer showing black cursor on black color theme
I'm afraid this is also the wrong place. You want Super User.

If I recall, you can force a dictionary definition by using define:{term}, e.g., define:pertain.

If you've added your email address to your Gmail account and it works to send mail from that account, what is it that you're asking?

comment Why do I get so many unsolicited Facebook friend requests?
I can't speak to other Facebook users, but I can't remember the last time I got a friend request from someone I don't know. Then again, I think I have that restricted to "friends of friends".

comment Why do I get so many unsolicited Facebook friend requests?
As to "why", that's difficult to know. Do you have a common name? Is your profile picture obviously female?

comment Gmail blocking Gmail?
This is not viable for those who use 2-factor authentication. "This setting is not available for accounts with 2-Step Verification enabled. Such accounts require an application-specific password for less secure apps access."

comment If I replace a PDF file in Google Drive, will the share link stay the same, or will I have to give out a new one?
I don't know why this was migrated. It's not clearly about the web interface of Google Drive. You can get a "share" link directly from the PC app.

comment Facebook says vanity URL for page is not available, but it is not used by another page
I misremembered. You used to need 25 Likes, but that restriction was removed some time ago. (source)

comment Gmail filters for conversations I am participating in
Well, my point wasn't that you'd filter on starred messages, but that the starred messages are just threads you're participating in.

comment Google+ photo comments error: “Sorry, we are temporarily unable to post your comment. Please try again in a few minutes.”
What am I doing wrong? Probably nothing. A temporary glitch, perhaps? Have you tried with a different browser? Have you tried with AdBlock off? What about other extensions? It's been most of a day since you posted this. Is it still happening?

comment Facebook says vanity URL for page is not available, but it is not used by another page
I seem to recall that a page needed to have a minimum number of "Likes" before you could get a vanity URL for it. I don't know if that's still true. It might also be that the vanity URL you want has been used in the past and, even though there is no page there now, Fbook won't let you recycle it.

comment Google Spreadsheet changing cell references on its own
While this link may answer the question, it is better to include the essential parts of the answer here and provide the link for reference. Link-only answers can become invalid if the linked page changes.

comment Request removal of a Google+ page when all other ways of accessing it fail
Generally speaking, you're not going to get telephone support for a service that you don't pay for, especially one as big as what Google is offering. Posting on the Google+ Product Forums might help, since there are a few Google employees who trawl through there once in a while.
