Note that some ISPs will intercept all DNS requests anyways, whether you've set other ones or not.

comment How to debug dpkg configure error in subprocess post-installation?
You have to scroll up in your terminal and see the specific error, in the message you saw. To debug these, you have to see what the exact error was that triggered this.

comment Why does apt-get update get a 403 from private-ppas for purchases in the software-center?
This is not really an answer. This probably should have been posted as a comment.

@wojox By "aliases" I assume you mean other nicknames or names. On this site, I went with the name "The Lord of Time" here for a while. On Launchpad, my previous username was trekcaptainusa-tw which was created based on the email when I got started there, so I could remember the username. Here, I don't remember all my aliases, but the longest-running one I had was "The Lord of Time". When I switched my name everywhere to "teward" or "Thomas Ward", I switched here. Still trying to get the forums' username changed (ubuntuforums.org), but there's some technical issues there right now.

@LuísdeSousa Forgive me, but I think your question lacks a little bit of clarity in what you're asking. Moderatordom is not another step in the Ask Ubuntu hierarchy. As a mod, you are considered to be someone who actively wants to help the community, and someone who can help to handle the rare disputes when they arise. I do not see moderatorship as another step in the chain of power, but rather as a way to help to improve the site and to help reduce tension within the community when issues do arise. Ultimately, my long term goal is to help Ask Ubuntu be an ideal Ubuntu support site.

While this may theoretically answer the question, it would be preferred that you post the key points of a link here.

comment Trouble Installing MySQL workbench
@kamil That's not what I meant. I meant the dependencies don't exist on the mirrors anymore. 10.10 is EOL which means it is no longer supported. The user needs to use a non-End of Life release.

@kamil he's on 10.10. That will error with getting dependencies.

And, my penchant of staying up late nights Eastern US time (between 02:00 - 06:30 GMT/UTC) gives me the ability to help out during some of those slow times. (I ran out of space in my previous comment, and have no space in my nomination post, so sorry for not moving this to my nomination post)

You're right, as a 10k+ user, I have access to the flag tools, of which moderator access doesn't add much to. However, the flag tools only allow me to help see the flags and either (a) agree or (b) disagree with them, or flag for moderator attention. There are many times during the day when our moderators are "absent" and the "high flag count" posts aren't cleared out, and, say, eight people have actually flagged something as "Not an Answer" and its still there. As a mod, I'd make it a goal to try and be around during "slow times" to help move the flags queue along in these cases.

Patience is better. And just as an FYI, if you continued to bump your posts, you could've gotten your post edit-locked so that NOBODY but mods could edit. Constantly reverting one's edits just because you want something in the title, when it's not supposed to be in the title, usually ends up in an "edit war" and posts get locked. Don't bump your posts, basically.

That's not why he removed it. Putting additional irrelevant information in the topic JUST to bump the question (which is really what you were doing) is why myself and fossfreedom and others removed that from your title.

DO NOT edit your topic to add "[Accepting Answers]" again. Until this question has an answer marked as "Accepted" it is assumed you are accepting answers. Adding "Accepting Answers" to your title only bumps this thread, and you should not do that. (The fact that both me and a moderator have had to reverse this means that you should listen to this comment. Check the revision history to see what I mean by me and a moderator both reversing this change.)

comment Emails send to Yahoo declined
@AdrianGeorge I checked Yahoo's documentation on this. You should start by reading this link here because it explains why you're seeing that error. Specifically it indicates that "Yahoo is seeing a high volume of emails from your IP address, which is a characteristic of unsolicited, bulk emailing."

This is too broad and opinion based. As well, we've answered this question multiple times on the site.
