When I enter a PUBLIC github.com URL onto a Wiki page, I am plagued with "https://github.com/xxx- You don't have permissions to view. Try another account" on my pages. I just want the URL to appear without the (extremely annoying) message.

That was even worse, so I revoked access again and am now annoyed by this nagging message. Please let us opt out of this worse-than-useless feature and choose to let GitHub URLs be treated the same as any other dumb URL.

So when I do a copy/paste of anything with a GitHub URL reference I now have to edit the link (by adding quotes around it sometimes) to get rid of that message. Frustrating.
Hey, Atlassian? Fix this garbage. You're not fooling anyone.
EDIT: I found another workaround. Copy a URL and paste it into the Confluence editor. Wait a couple of seconds for it to replace it with the "You don't have access" text. Then hit CTRL-Z. This seems to undo the thing and just leave the link as a regular link, like before.
Hey there, folks! For most of us, the past six months- yes, you read that right- have been a journey. More people than ever before have pivoted to working remotely, and navigating being on-scre...
