Is it possible for us to allow uploading zip files (probably with some size restrictions)? It is very helpful for programming related websites. We usually need to use websites like pastebin for sharing long codes (or logs) which usually are of some kbs.

With a ZIP file you never know what it actually contains nor what you are actually in for when you open up the ZIP file. It could be partly password protected and contain other malicious content (including but not restricted to ZIP bombs). 

While the original intention may be good, it can be misused and the hosting company would be held responsible. 

My opinion: I wouldn't click on a ZIP file anywhere on the internet. In most  cases I don't even click on Google Drive, One Drive, pastebin or other links. 

**I wouldn't miss this feature if it weren't implemented**
