The OLD api was very insecure, and was abused too much by spammers. Less
than 1% of items posted were not spam.
There is a new CLI you can find here: http://pastebin.com/tools#pastebincl
Why this package is still in portage? It has no support for new API since 2012. A good replacement of this package, app-text/pastebinit, is already stabilized, and it's good time to thing about the removal.
Best regards, Vladimir.
@treecleaner, could you please take action here?
