It’s no big secret that Big Tech’s tentacles have a vast reach, with platforms like Facebook and Twitter admitting in so many words after the fact to deliberately suppressing news content prior to the 2020 presidential election that portrayed then-Democratic nominee for president Joe Biden and his international wheelin’ and dealin’ son Hunter in a less than flattering light being one of the more notable examples. But as has already been made clear by online payment systems like PayPal and Venmo, even more silencing of alternative points of view is needed in the form of financial strangulation


No PayPay for me. A $2500 fine that cannot be appealed in nuts.

Politically unwise but even more importantly, how on earth is it sensible business practice to anger half your potential customer base? There is a good reason that Disney stock is half what it was just a year ago. If I owned this stock, I'd sell it for sure.

I know the founder of GAB was talking about setting up an e-payment system. I cannot find a link on their website though.

If I’ve understood this article correctly, the new policy is aimed at businesses which accept payments via PayPal and not at individuals who use it to shop or donate online. I no longer own a business and don’t have a website so, theoretically, this wouldn’t affect me. Though, I suppose they could come after me for shopping with conservative businesses or contributing to conservative charities. Better not to take a chance. Off to find an alternative…

All these websites do unilateral alteration of contracts. How i that legal? One is constantly being forced to either knuckle under or find another provider for their service. Please SCOTUS clarify the 230 rule and get us out from under these leftist tyrants.

Paypal provides the reason their stock has dropped from $192 to $95 per share this year. This should tank it even further.

We got hacked thru PayPal a few years ago. Thieves were helping themselves to cash advances thru our DiscoverCard and cash transfers thru our ckg acct. Those were the only 2 payment sources we had listed with PayPal when we opened it 15 yrs ago. We were reimbursed via the bank, and Discover, but were never notified of suspicious activity by the bank or Discover OR Lifelock. Took me 3+ months to check, call followup with all our other financial institutions to make sure no other credit cards, etc., were opened. We dropped LifeLock after that. Took our money and did nothing.

I found this on line: The easiest way to reduce your risk exposure immediately is to withdraw your money from PayPal as quickly as possible. Don’t ever leave your payments sitting in a PayPal account for longer than necessary. You can also minimize risk by refusing to use PayPal for transactions larger than $1000, not using PayPal for payroll purposes, and generally reducing the number of transactions your business processes through PayPal. Keep just enough in it so they have nothing to confiscate.

I've been a fairly happy PayPal user since about a month after they first started doing business, and in the beginning made a lot of money that I wouldn't have without them. The last few years I have steadily become more annoyed with them (and with eBay) to the point I barely use either of them anymore. After reading this thread and the linked article, I went to PayPal to confirm the update to the 'user agreement', and sure enough, the article is correct. I immediately tried to close the account, but the system refused to do so. I guess I'm going to have to contact my bank and Credit Card company that is linked to my account and tell them to never pay anything to 'PayPalpatine' in case they decide that this post is a 'fineable offense'. Merely not keeping a PayPal balance won't prevent them from fining you if you say something they don't like.; They will take it out of your linked bank account(s) and/or credit card(s)

Don’t ever use PayPal. They are controlled by the feds and the left. Use your credit card and monitor it every day. PayPal is prepared to cut you off if the present administration thinks you don’t follow the party line.

I canceled my PayPal account today. I could not cancel online without giving them my cell number which wasn’t going to happen. I called 1-888-221-1161 and canceled. It took less than 5 minutes. I feel much better.

CANTERBURY, N.H. — A cabin at the center of a legal battle with a man known as "River Dave" caught fire Wednesday, hours after the man appeared in court for a hearing. The cabin's resident, David Lidstone, will remain in jail for at least another week for not complying with a court order. On Wednesday, the Canterbury Fire Department reported that Lidstone's cabin is a total loss. The State Fire Marshal's Office was called in to investigate the cause of the fire which remains under investigation. "No fire trucks could make access to the scene we used UTVs," said Chief Mike Gamache with Canterbury fire department.

What to do about “River Dave?” That would be the old man who says he would rather rot in jail than give up the cabin in the Canterbury woods along the Merrimack where he has lived for nearly three decades. Trouble is, the courts have found that River Dave doesn’t own the land on which his cabin sits. His latest refusal to decamp has landed him in jail for 30 days for contempt of court, although a judge says he won’t hold Dave any longer than that.

First Lady Jill Biden offered a rare personal glimpse into her views on abortion during a political fundraiser in San Francisco on Friday, retelling the story of how her mother helped care for a teenage friend who got an abortion 60 years ago. Biden, who was 17 at the time, said her friend didn’t want to be pregnant, but learned that a doctor would only perform an abortion if she underwent a psychiatric evaluation and was declared mentally unfit. It was the late 1960s, before the Supreme Court’s Roe v. Wade decision, and abortion was illegal in Pennsylvania, where she

Some Chicago Marathon runners are feeling a little blue heading into this weekend’s race. One of the biggest events of the year for the sport followed Boston and London with the creation of a nonbinary division for runners who don’t identify as male or female. The lack of hype around the new inclusive division left some of those who identify as such with a bad taste in their mouths. According to the Chicago Sun-Times, there was no major announcement to coincide with the division. "Personally, it feels hurtful because it feels performative, or brushed under the rug, because it really is a big deal," Cal Calamia told the newspaper

New York City Mayor Eric Adams declared a state of emergency Friday in response to the continued arrival of illegal migrants from southern states. More than 17,000 migrants have been bused to the city since the spring, a small fraction of the migrant encounters at the border over that timeframe. Fox News cameras at the Port Authority transportation terminal filmed eight buses arriving Friday, after nine arrived Thursday. Adams said that one in five people in the city's shelter system is a migrant, which is creating the "crisis." "This is a humanitarian crisis that started with violence and instability in South America and is being accelerated by American political dynamics,"

Fluty was quickly stopped by security while Taylor made it to the field. But as he ran across the field evading security, Rams linebacker Bobby Wagner stepped in and flattened the protester with a sharp body block sending Taylor sprawling down to the ground.

In 90 days, nine Army bases long named for Confederate generals will “immediately” begin swapping to more palatable-to-the-woke-crowd labels such as “Fort Liberty”–in a move that will cost more than $21 million. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin on Thursday ordered the Army to begin renaming nine bases selected for the change by an independent commission after a congressionally mandated 90-day wait period expires. “I fully support the efforts and recommendations of the Naming Commission on this important
