After reading this post from Wirecutter and then finding the darn update of the future Acceptable Uses Policy, I am also eliminating PayPal from my transaction tools.
I have enough aggravation with Facebook having me in limbo for 30 days “pending review” of whatever meme was that twisted their Nethers the wrong way without having Paypal engross their bottom line enforcing ethereal morality clauses for the same posts.
Update: Get woke…

Dumped both years ago, when it became clear that both organizations were political activists. I knew then it would only get worse….now the financial services organization warns their user that they have to agree to be fined if they violate leftist political agendas….as they see it, or they can’t use their product. Supporting an anti-non-heterosexual organization warrants a fine of $2500.00 from your bank account…per infraction. How many genders are there now? Fifty or sixty…or more. Supporting a movement which states that the LGBTQ+ community is satanic, and evil could be deemed by PayPal to justify many ‘per infractions’.
Come on, you know it’s perfectly normal policy for a bank to confiscate the money of any customer who engages in activities, or speech, that a bank employee considers “objectionable”.
What, it isn’t? Just wait a few months.
Thanks for the nudge to do this. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for some time. I don’t use them much so there’s little point to keeping it open anyway.
The process seems simple enough, just a couple of clicks, but apparently it will take 30 days for them to review it and actually close the account. Sigh.
I appreciate the direct link to the policy. Gives it legitimacy when spread hither and yon.
I just got one idiot in Twitter laughing and saying it was another conspiracy theory. Then again Rick the Dick has never been anything but a little fanatical mind drone.
My comment to PayPal: Your new “Acceptable Use Policy” violates my first amendment rights under the Constitution of the United States. PayPal was a useful financial tool. Now it has declared itself to be a political entity, and is a financial liability based upon some unknown “fact checker” deciding if my speech is “correct”.
Resistance is futile. 8>)
