Quote from the post: "As of August 30th 2015, users will no longer be able to create new Pipes. The Pipes team will keep the infrastructure running until end of September 30th 2015 in a read-only mode."

I like the attitude at 37signals of less is usually better. You want customers to love your product because it lets them accomplish something without complicating their life. Software products can quickly become unusable as features are added without constraint. Every single option exponentially adds complexity since the number of states the software can be in multiplies. In addition, more options inevitably lead to more complex UI which in turn frustrates your user since it will be more time consuming to use. Flexibility in software typically breeds complication.

While evaluating MailChimp as an email service provider I noticed they referenced a tool which is useful in debugging HTTP POST requests.
PostBin lets you debug web hooks by capturing and logging the asynchronous requests made when events happen. Make a PostBin and register the URL with a web hook provider. All POST requests to the URL are logged for you to see when you browse to that URL.
