For fun, I checked the other 25 domain names that are a single letter followed by "paste.com". One domain registrar/squatter holds nine of them. Asking prices in ascending order:

bpaste.com: $2095
tpaste.com: $2795
apaste.com: $2895
qpaste.com: $3295
npaste.com: $3395
xpaste.com: $4995
gpaste.com: $4795
lpaste.com: $5595
fpaste.com: $6495

In the event that any of these actually sell, I think I should get a cut, for making this a desirable neighborhood.

We're having some slow response times and occasional errors this afternoon, possibly due to a DDoS. Sorry about that!

One thing I see a lot in the dpaste.com bucket is spammers promoting stuff they have managed to put on *other* sites. Here are a few esteemed Insitutions of higher learning I've contacted this week, because a spammer found a vulnerability on one of their sites, posted spam, then tried to promote the links via dpaste:

UC Berkeley
UCSF
Princeton University
Columbia University

We briefly ended up on Google's malware blocklist earlier today. This can happen when people try to use the site to host malicious Javascript for injecting into pages they've compromised elsewhere. To summarize: 1) there's nothing unsafe about using dpaste.com regardless of what people post on it, and 2) the block has been cleared.

I see a lot of odd things when purging spam from the database. Today's most interesting case: Somebody had found an exploit in a top university's Drupal installation, and used it to post 60 different clickable PDFs promoting specific movie downloads on a movie piracy site.
