#StackBounty: #files #symlink #ext4 #delete #xattr How to make a symlink read only (`chattr +i /location/symlink`)?

Bounty: 50

How can we lock a symlink so it cannot be deleted?

With a normal file/directory chattr +i /file/location can achieve this but doing so with a symlink we get chattr: Operation not supported while reading flags on my-file.

There is a similar question, How to set chattr +i for my /etc/resolv.conf?, but without a solution that could be applied here.

#StackBounty: #gmail #email-forwarding #automation #delete #block Why Gmail developers doesn't allow blocking email addresses?

Bounty: 100

In Gmail it is only possible to “block” an email addresses by automatically transferring all their emails into SPAM folder (the emails won’t get deleted).
For me, this is not blocking.

I ran various search engine queries to try to understand why blocking addresses isn’t allowed by Google, inc. but found nothing. Google’s policy on this is even more odd for me given that big email service providers does give that option:

hotmail.com and mail.com does give that option and if an email (or IP address) is putted in a bad list it will be totally blocked (sended emails won’t appear anywhere – not in SPAM or TRASH either).
