paypal shuts down ondoy donations

i've heard my share of paypal horror stories but none have boiled my blood like this one about paypal freezing the paypal accounts of a couple of groups processing donations for ondoy victims.

and the really slimy thing is, paypal kept changing the reason for the suspension. first it was "requests for information", then after all the necessary documents were provided, they claimed to not process donations at all, in any country (NOT TRUE).

they only gave in and restored the accounts after their Global Communications Chief was subtly threatened with a PR shitstorm.


i say give 'em the shitstorm anyways!
