@Akumaburn this community has specific expectations regarding advertising and self-promotion. Specifically, we require that you disclose any affiliation (including affiliate links) to links you post, and require that posts with such links do not comprise the majority of your contributions. If you aren't interested in abiding by those expectations, you may either choose not to participate, or may find your account suspended.

@Akumaburn I would counter that the voting system is doing a very good job at identifying posts with potential problems. Your perception of "the truth" seems to be tainted by your pursuit of personal profit under the guise of an answer.

@Akumaburn of course not. Anybody can downvote for any reason they want to. In fact it's quite common to downvote posts that look like spam - like this one.

@Akumaburn that's still spamming. You could provide a regular link, and then separately have a discount link that is clearly labeled as being an affiliate link that you personally benefit from. See our expected behavior regarding self promotion.

comment Something took control over Notepad++?
I have removed argumentative comments that did not address the question of "what is going on with Notepad++". This answer explains exactly why the behavior the question-asker observed occurred. If you are interested in debating the morality of the situation, I suggest you create a chat room to do so, or better yet, take it up with the developers of Notepad++ directly. Please keep all future comments focused on the question. Off-topic questions will be deleted, and the post may be locked if arguments continue.

comment How to add manually to and manage AutoComplete list, in MS Outlook 2013?
@LawArea51Proposal it appears that this answer does explain your first point, how to delete specific emails from the autocomplete list. The bit about clearing it completely is additional information that could be useful to other visitors. Perhaps somebody else will come along with a solution to your second request.

@akumaburn while genuine recommendations are appreciated, embedding affiliate links through URL shorteners and posing them as regular answers is not acceptable and is considered spamming. Please refrain from this behavior in the future. I have edited the link to be a regular link.

@Jakke if you do not like the Stack Exchange format, anonymous downvotes included, you are welcome to seek out alternative sites to answer your questions. Downvotes are specifically intended to indicate that a post is "unclear or not useful". If you edit your post to meet the community's quality standards, often times people will reverse their downvotes. Ranting and swearing is not productive, and will not be tolerated. Please see our expectations of user conduct for more information.

Just because the answer is obvious to some of us doesn't mean the question is invalid or off-topic.
