Delete a snippet

If you created a snippet with the API you can't delete it on the webpage since it's not in your history. You can delete a snippet here. Actually you can delete any snippet of anybody, as long as you know the short code.

If you deleted a snippet because of legal issues, please let me know that, I want to keep track of such things and try to avoid in future.

Type the 6 letter code of your snippet in the field and submit. Like this yellow one here: http://xelpaste.org//SiZr
