So listen: Does anyone who uses Paypal remember some noise last . . . uh, last spring, I think? About how you had so-many (but-no-more) days in which to sign some agreement with them, or they'd boot you? I don't remember whether it was a privacy agreement or a terms of service, or what. I just remember going (like I always do), "Oh, yeah, I need to remember to do that." And I remember doing that through several further email reminders from them.
"Oh yeah, I need to remember to do that."
Well, you know, tomorrow never comes until it does, and now I can't use Paypal, even though there are still tons of bloggers who use it, people to whom I'd like to give a buck or two.
Has this happened to anyone else? How did you solve it, if so? Because last I poked around the Paypal site, there was no solving it; it was the big "too bad, so sad, loser." Okay, so they gave me half a dozen reminders! It still seems harsh. Where're my 43rd and 44th chances, huh?
Do you know what I think the stupidest thing any company can do is?--Make it difficult for you to spend money. This should be EASY. I should be able to spend money blindfolded and intoxicated, with one arm chopped off, while hemorrhaging. This is America.
UPDATE: Maybe the "it wuz ph1shers, d00d" crowd (wait, that's ALL of you) could explain why I get this when I attempt to sign into Paypal?
Those emails I was receiving weren't asking me to click a link or do any of the usual stupid phishing tricks; they were asking me to log into my Paypal account (and they didn't care how I did it) and acknowledge an updated-something agreement, which I never did, and ever since I've gotten the above when I've attempted to log in.
