News


Worth bringing to light, is an article from the Antipope regarding a horrible article in a Greek newspaper:

I also want to shine some light on PayPal ruining Christmas this year: (warning, language)
http://www.regretsy.com/2011/12/05/cats-1-kids-0/
It's all down hill, and in the end, poor kids lose, PayPal keeps their cut of all transactions, freezes all accounts of the person trying to do charity work.. the whole thing can be summed up in the following quote from a PayPal support rep:
PAYPAL: And what you’re doing is not a worthy cause, it’s charity.
REGRETSY: What’s the difference?
PAYPAL: You can use the donate button to raise money for a sick cat, but not poor people.
via GAS.. they since gave a not-apology and haven't really done anything to stop it from happening again. They're also not the first fundraiser PayPal has screwed with poor customer service.
