Actually most sites don't allow cross posting -- so it is likely that you will be warned (or even banned) with most other sites.

Javaranch actually allows you to cross post. We just ask that you give us a link, so that users don't waste time answering a question that may have already been answered.


These rules are actually to help you to get more people likely to answer your questions. People hate to waste time. If you think wasting time reading a warning is bad, imagine wasting time answering a question that has already been answered. Sites that don't warn users become infested with crossposters. And tend to drive away people who will rather answer the question elsewhere.

Visiting this site, as any other, is voluntary.

And the question you posted here *was* answered on the other site; that you posted another question on that same thread, which you then cross-posted here without mentioning that, is why you received the warning.

I'm not sure what you request means, so I figure the closest thing is to lock your account. So I locked your account.
