The website pastebin. Why?


A real newbie question. Why do ppl use the site pastebin?

To paste code obviously. But why a site dedicated to that?

Websites like that are extremely useful for pasting all sorts of logs that will not be needed any more. They are a recommended way of pasting any code, error messages, logs on IRC channels where posting snippets of code is not only impractical but also not allowed.

Never knew it existed.

Probably will never use it.

One trick pony website where that same capability exists in a variety of other manners.

AND you can't use it in Venezuela!!!! (I'm either never going to Venezuela or never using pastebin. .... OK probably both! )
