Botched sources or the woes of sharing source code on WordPress

While nobody really asked, I noticed that WordPress terribly botches the scripts I post, replacing quotes with “smart” quotes, double-dashes with long dashes, etc.

That pretty much beats my purpose of sharing the scripts in the first place, since it makes it impractical to copy and paste them, so I’m looking for a different way of sharing my scripts.

I would have preferred to simply upload zipped tarballs to wordpress, however they do not seem allow uploading that file format (for security reasons?), nor do they allow uploading any other archive or plain-text format.

I will attempt to contact the WordPress support about this, in the meantime I’d love to hear suggestions of ways to solve this, id rather not resort to storing the files on a different site.
