Teresa Nielsen Hayden runs down the debacle of PayPal shutting down Regretsy’s toys-for-kids drive on utterly ludicrous grounds. PayPal works fairly well for most people most of the time, but every once in awhile we get these kinds of reminders of how much power PayPal has over your money if you choose to use them to process payments. There is a very troubling lack of accountability here.

Paypal has been the thorn in my side for some time now. When it comes to actually being paid they will hold funds for no reason at all. I’m not the only one this has happened to either ie: http://www.screw-paypal.com/index.html They will make you go out of business with their practices. I was appauled at how many people go through the same thing that don’t get heard because there’s not enough fuss made or the media hasn’t latched on to it.
