    Can you recommend me any other Java help forums, since no one has hear of this magical things called source hosting before?

    For long posts, enter text in a text editor. When ready to post, copy and paste it into a thread on the forum.
    If the forum has a problem, the text will still be in the text editor.
    If you don't understand my answer, don't ignore it, ask a question.

    I thought of copying it a second before I hit post, but then I thought, "No, I did nothing wrong - I put detailed information on how to replicate it, links to my software repos, info about my OS and java versions." I didn't do it though, because I couldn't conceive of such an amazingly exceptional (exceptional in a very specific sense) rule.

    Why exactly do you limit URLs?
