Pastebin owner Jeroen Vader recently told the BBC that he plans to hire additional staff to focus on removing illegal data dumps from the site as quickly as possible.

"Pastebin currently gets 1,200 abuse reports a day via either its on-site notification system or by email," writes The Register's John Leyden.

"'I am looking to hire some extra people soon to monitor more of the website content, not just the items reported,' Vader told the BBC in an email interview. 'Hopefully this will increase the speed in which we can remove sensitive information,'" Leyden writes.
