That seems to be a problem with a certain class of users that have
adopted Pastebin, not a problem with the site itself.  What do you
hope to accomplish by boycotting Pastebin for actual code pastes?
Even if the site were to cease to exist tomorrow, what is to stop the
hackers from simply switching to dpaste or gist like everybody else?
