hi *!

i'd like to suggest that people refrain from using pastebin and other 
ephemeral upload mechanisms for mailing list discussions, because that 
will make the list archives next to useless. imagine the frustration of 
a user who googled a problem and was getting her/his hopes up, only to 
find that all relevant information was on pastebin and has since gone to 
the bit bucket.

i'm a big fan of pastebin for IRC and the like, but it kinda defeats the 
purpose of mailing lists.
