That question was autoprotected by the system for having 3 spam/non-answer posts added to it back in 2017. The reason the answer box wasn't available was that the system requires you to have 10 reputation on a site (reference, this does not include your association bonus) to answer a protected question.
That being said, there's no reason to continue to ...
Yes, your question is on-topic here. You might want to look at some of the other questions tagged gmail-canned-response; other folks have asked similar questions.
You might want to break your post up into smaller paragraphs to make it a bit easier to read online.
I put the question on hold. Please see the Help, but specifically:
Don't ask about...
Creating or developing a web application
Your other question was marginally okay, because it was asking about how to use the web interface of a particular feature, but a general question about something solely related to writing web applications is ...
You're asking for an app recommendation. Those are explicitly off-topic here. You might try Software Recommendations, but be sure to read their question guidance, as they have stringent question guidelines.
You may be able to get your question to be on-topic if you focus on the problem you're trying to solve, rather than finding the solution you've already ...
I was the one that migrated the question. In retrospect, I probably should have left a comment as to why I made the decision, so for that, I apologize.
You asked two sub-questions, and I will address them separately.
Why was Wunderlist designed to not work in private browsing mode in Firefox?
This first question, asking about the company's reasoning/...
These questions can only be accurately answered by someone who works for the company/app. It clogs Web Apps with a bunch of unanswered questions that turn into tumbleweeds.
It's not that your question is getting no attention it's that it's objectively unanswerable unless you built it yourself. WebApps do not have employees from these companies on hand ...
It met the auto-delete criteria:

Google Calendar web UI doesn't have anything that could help,
If I would like to research in order to write an anwser to that Q, I would start by looking at Google Developers, actually I would go directly Google Calendar API
So, IMHO, the related Q should be migrated to StackOverflow.
Your question isn't about the web portion of Dropbox at all. It's about the file sync service. Only questions about the web interface of Dropbox are on-topic here.
That Super User's community thinks that "how Dropbox does what it does" is off-topic for Super User does not indicate that it's then on topic for Web Apps.
So, you should bring up on the Super ...
Questions about the web interfaces to particular online tools are really only on-topic here to the extent that they are about using the web interface itself. You are asking about the reasons behind a particular error message, which is not really our expertise here.
This is akin to asking:
Is Google Spreadsheets internally using a heuristic to try and ...
It should not be re-opened as nowadays it's an off-topic question, actually it already has 2 delete votes. If it receive one more, it will be deleted.
IMHO the best way to proceed is to post a similar question on Software Recomendations.

I initially closed it under the assumption that you were looking for rankings of such sites, but really, at the question's core, you are asking for site recommendations. I adjusted the close reason accordingly.
Lists of anything, but recommendations in particular, go stale quickly. We've found this firsthand with many of the recommendation questions that ...
Consider yourself lucky, you've gotten two nice answers !!
answer given, as per comment, directs to a massively voted Q&A on Stack Overflow.
answer re-directs to a Wiki-page, about how to build an email address with the proper syntax.
This almost indicates that the information you're looking for is rather quickly obtainable or users have a hunch that ...
Your edit summary could have been a bit more detailed, but I think those two reviewers were incorrect.
We often guide people how to indicate that a question isn't a duplicate to another, and part of that guidance is to edit the marked duplicate explaining how it's not a duplicate with a link to what it's supposedly a duplicate of.
Such is the risk of a ...
The close reason states:
"It is a question about creating/developing a web application."
How to download this webpage? is now closed.
Bearing in mind that this was over 5 years ago now, it's safe to say that the question likely fell through the cracks or was considered to be on the borderline at that point.
Our site has certainly evolved drastically from what it once was, so there is going to be this type of situation now and again. Overall,...
There are occasionally misunderstandings in terms of scope.
There may have been a time in the distant past in which such questions would be on-topic here, and many people on SE still haven't caught up with our "new" focus (as a related example, many people still think we accept things like web app requests, which we haven't entertained for years now).
How would you reframe that? You're essentially asking for a recommendation for an app that would allow you watch something on TV without a television. Questions asking for recommendations are explicitly off-topic here.
Try Software Recommendations or maybe the chat at Politics Stack Exchange.
The best solution is probably to delete the Super User post and repost here afresh.
Getting the current question back would either require the Super User mods to reopen and then re-migrate the question or for one of us mods to clear the migration history at this end and reopen the question.
It will be far easier for the OP to delete the Super User version ...
Yes, the referred question is off-topic on this site.
While nowadays it's very common that popular "web applications" have a mobile app, this site's scope doesn't encompasses all the front-ends, it's only about using such web applications.
Even on applications like Instagram, WhatsApp and other software as services which their main functionality is ...
As mentioned in comment the question was seen on Reddit, Lobsters, Hacker News which I suspect is responsible for driving the traffic. We can't determine sources of traffic per question so that's about my best guess.
I don't see anything obviously wrong or suspicious.. though I agree about the question being more suitable for Super User and migrated there ...
Tl;Dr the question doesn't look to be a high quality question, it doesn't look to be a good fit for this site as it's very likely that only the comments moderators might answer it. Also it looks that you added the bounty too soon.
First you should have in mind that there is no warranty that all questions will get an answer, second there is no warranty that ...
The question quite clearly, to me, was
"Does gmail/hotmail have any special rules about email addresses?"
and the answer should have been
"No, they follow the standard rules for email addresses that everyone* follows.
*most everyone, I'm sure there's an exception or two out there"
I do think a young site like this should be careful about how eager it is ...
This site's scope doesn't encompasses all the possible discussions about web applications, it is focused on using web applications.
i.e. questions about web applications policies are off-topic
Are questions regarding website policies on-topic?
Do we need a close reason for questions asking about proprietary/non-public information or policies?
Your question should really have been asked on Maths meta as it concerns that site. While we are here to help you with questions about websites, questions about other sites on the Stack Exchange network are effectively off topic as we have dedicated sites (the meta sites) for each main site.
Rather than migrate it there though it's probably best if you ...
