comment Options to get a higher email send limit
Please reread the question and either update your answer or delete it, since as is it reads as completely unrelated to my question; hint: "I'm send one, and only one email per address." Thanks.

comment Does Gmail provide a way to see a hash of an email?
+1 Thanks, aware of the IDs, though as you know, it does not appear to be a hash; that said, it would likely be of if storing hashes.

comment In Gmail, what is the safest way to download, save & print all emails with a given tag?
Selected as answer; okay, well it appears that Thunderbird supports this, and agree, the PDF aspect is just a matter of using PDFCreator. Thanks!

comment In Gmail, what is the safest way to download, save & print all emails with a given tag?
+1 Thanks, able to confirm that the above works; issue is your answer does not show how to print the files, say from Thunderbird directly to paper, or better yet to a PDF, that's then printable. Is there a reason you failed to answer that aspect of the question? Thanks!

comment Does Google Hangouts live streaming have a viewer count limit?
+1 Thank you so much; curious, what Google search did use to find that page, or did you just know to try limiting the search to the "productforums.google.com" sub-domain?

comment Is there a right way to unfollow Twitter users?
@Al Everett: Yes, you will get banned, or a warning, if you bulk unfollow users in some ways, and Twitter will not clearly state what those ways are...

@downvoter: While I value your opinion, without a comment to explain the downvote there's no way for me to attempt address your concerns. Thanks!

comment Is there a right way to unfollow Twitter users?
@Al Everett: Agree it's related, though it doesn't touch on "the right way" to unfollow users; meaning it's my understanding that some patterns of unfollowing users will have a negative effect on your account, maybe even result in your account getting flagged with a warning or banned.

comment Is there a right way to unfollow Twitter users?
+1 Thanks, looking at the "free" version right now, though it looks like I'm already finding some issues. For example, there's a user that's not following me, but the user retweeted a tweet of mine, and created an account on my site; meaning it would be unwise to unfollow them in my opinion, and it does not appears that ManageFlitter is checking for something as important as retweets. Still looks good so far, and better than nothing.

comment How do I download a complete list of followers for a Twitter account?
+1 @Dez: Yes, I can see how for a account with a lot of followers, and lots of followers being added real-time, that pages might get result in dups, but if the page is done from most recent, this so more of a performance issue than anything, right?

comment How do I download a complete list of followers for a Twitter account?
+1 @Bibhas: Thanks point that out, just noticed that in the output and traced it back to the docs, but your comment was confirmation I was correctly processing how paging works. Thanks!

comment How do I download a complete list of followers for a Twitter account?
+1 @Erwin: Awesome. Looked at the docs and the output, but it's not clear how the "cursor" parameter works. Does passing a value of "-1" to the "cursor" parameter return (0-4999), and "0" (5000-9999), and "1" (5000-9999), etc? Also, what are those userIDs being sorted on; meaning ID, follow-date, etc.? Huge thanks!

comment Reasons why a Google Voice number might be taken away
+1 @Scott Wilson: Guess I'm not looking for the primary, but any reason, though that might be hard to peg.

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
For example, hotmail locked me out after 30 email, then refused to let me send more emails because I don't have a cell phone with a top 5 carrier; guessing they're lazy and send email SMS to the carrier.

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
No idea though, just known I created the account, drafted an email, hit send, and was locked out. Was using three browsers, because I had just started using chrome, noticed how different gmail was in chrome, figured I'd compare FF, IE, and chrome. Anyway, why is sending an email every 3-mins wrong? There's no way I'd send more than 100 emails from one provider right now anyway, since I hate getting locked out, but I'm not getting anywhere close.

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
@neo: It's easy to send out emails fast, and yes, I believe the speed I'm able to but new email, after together makes me look like a bot, but clearly I'm not. Honestly believe yesterday I got locked out because I used three browser in the same account in the span of less than one minute; which Google read as being three ppl, and it's against there rules to have shared email accounts.

comment Options to get a higher email send limit
@neo: Yes, I know those are the numbers they post, but that's not how Google works. They've got hidden controls, and randomly lock you out without notice or reason. lol, yesterday I created an account, walked away, came back, drafted an email by hand, hit send, and was locked-out of that account. No idea why, just know even me doing Google searches sometimes it'll lock me out saying I'm a bot, lol - which would be funny, expect I'm not a bot, and it's a pain deal with.

+1 Sohnee: Agree, seems to be the only option. Though thought of finding a domain that's short, professional seems like a massive headache. "Gmail business" requires you to have a domain to use it. Main super concern is that Google will link all of my account and lock me out; which would suck. No idea why all the service providers hide the limits from users, since I'm sure spammers just figure them out without caring if an account get locked. Anyway, agree with your answer, just seems like a huge pain.
