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.

comment How to stop Google+ Notifications?
Which notifications do you mean? The only notifications you can control from your settings are the ones that go to your email and/or phone.

comment How do I add contacts to CC for a group in Gmail?
This isn't answering the question asked. The OP wants to know how to set up a Contact Group so that, when used, some addresses automatically go to "To:" while others automatically go to "Cc:".

comment Gmail filters for conversations I am participating in
Without a way to distinguish messages in threads where you're participating or not filters aren't going to be workable. Perhaps using "mute conversation" on threads you don't want to follow or stars on conversations you do might be the only practical solutions.

There was a similar question asked here but I haven't been able to turn it up.

comment Google Maps menu in Russian
What URL are you using? If the domain ends in .ru I'd expect the interface to be in Russian.

Can you share a screen shot? Have you tried with a newer version of Picasa?

comment Google Plus circle and email
And while they might be able to see you have a person Circled, they can't see what Circle you put them in.

comment Why should I use the Google Authenticator app instead of SMS?
I don't have any particular insight into Google's Secret Sauce™. What I've read about other similar systems is that the algorithm uses a shared key (why you needed to scan a QR code) and the time to generate a six-digit number every 60 seconds.

comment How to sync files from OneDrive to Dropbox?
Unfortunately there is no trigger available OneDrive in IFTTT, so that precludes using that. I suspect that the OneDrive API simply doesn't have a way to get that information.

Bummer. (It was a guess, anyway.)
