This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for meta-discussion of the Stack Exchange family of Q&A websites.


This issue (and similar issues) has been heavily and thoroughly debated on Meta. It has resulted in changes to the faq:

and it is not about …
* videogames or consoles
* websites or web services like Facebook, Twitter, and WordPress
* electronic devices, media players, cell phones or smart phones, except insofar as they interface with your computer

You may have looked at an old version of the faq somehow, before that was there. Gmail is generally considered to fall under that second bullet point.

  • and what about mail services? – Jitendra Apr 5 '10 at 17:52
  • It's a mail service, but it's also a website. – Popular Demand Apr 5 '10 at 17:53

    Having read a number of your questions on SO, SU and Meta, I strongly recommend that you take some time and read the comprehensive FAQ thoroughly, to catch issues that have already been addressed: meta.stackexchange.com/questions/7931/… – Popular Demand Apr 5 '10 at 18:09

  • Hmm. You posted exactly the same thing as me. -1. But you used an image with freehand circles. +1. End result, you just get this comment. – Popular Demand Apr 5 '10 at 17:57
  • Don't forget the freehand circles are floating. – Droogans Apr 18 '12 at 13:08
