Submission + - paste.pocoo.org shut down (pocoo.org)

DangerOnTheRanger writes: "Well-known paste site LodgeIt (aka paste.pocoo.org) has shut down. According to the website (the paste submission form has been removed), the pastebin was shut down because "it turns out, running a pastebin is a horrible idea if you don't do entry expiration or spam filtering" and that the site administrators "found that some people were using the pastebin to distribute highly illegal content."

Apparently, none of the pastes are viewable anymore — all paste URLs redirect to a page detailing why the site shut down."
