    You can use 'pastebin', 'ghostbin', 'hastebin', 'paste', 'pasted' or many others to share your logs, errors, and the like, so a thread doesn't end up with endless scrolling. Then you just post that link here (maybe with a tiny snippet instead of many lines of log errors).

    Also helpful on your ISP help forum with router logs and modem logs that are long, and it preserves formatting (that you can tweak), which is nice. AntiVirus/Malware help forums also request long logs.

    Just throwing these out there as helpful info when troubleshooting Asus or Merlin:

    1. https://pastebin.com/

    2. https://ghostbin.com/

    3. https://hastebin.com/

    4. https://paste.ee/

    5. http://pasted.co/

    The code tag is even better.
    
    It shows 10-20 lines then truncates BUT it uses constant width characters so everything lines up and looks correct.
