Blazing Lazers Posted October 9, 2022 Share Posted October 9, 2022 It's never a good thing when I suddenly get messages from more than one person asking me about the same thing in the news. This time it was related to PayPal, from friends who know that I (used to) sell online. While PayPal already seems to have backtracked, this blew up pretty quickly online and it's very alarming that they would even consider doing something like this, let alone have it approved by multiple layers of management and legal people, as it surely must have been. Perhaps this corporate mentality of theirs is why their stock is down over half from the start of this year? In the few hours between this announcement and the retraction of it, I was seriously considering closing my accounts with them, and the following links are posted as a courtesy to everyone else that uses PayPal. https://m.slashdot.org/story/405689 https://news.yahoo.com/paypal-policy-permits-company-fine-143946902.html https://www.dailywire.com/news/new-paypal-policy-lets-company-pull-2500-from-users-accounts-if-they-promote-misinformation https://www.foxbusiness.com/economy/paypal-user-agreement-fining-users-promoting-misinformation-sent-error-spox-says https://www.teslarati.com/elon-musk-agrees-with-fmr-president-paypal/ https://news.bitcoin.com/new-paypal-policy-lets-firm-fine-users-2500-for-spreading-misinformation-tos-condemned-and-called-an-abomination/ https://www.thestreet.com/technology/paypal-in-self-inflicted-trouble Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
