PAYPAL is obviously owned by Scrooge
I mean honestly. I’ve always subscribed to the theory that if you’re going to screw up, you may as well screw up big,
but PAYPAL – congratulations, you’ve done a ROYAL job in screwing over Regretsy.
In my days of writing What Not To Crochet (which – I’ve explained about before, and I’ll get back to Misstitched soon) I occaisionally made reference to Helen Killer and her rich pickings of the worst of worstness that can be found on Regretsy.
However I find her writing funnier than the resuming writer of WNTC (or I note – WN2C…) and I lurk there when looking to bask in fuggery. And Whimsicle Fuckery.
So when I saw the plea for donations for the 200 families who the Finnish Fairytale Flinger had included in the arms of the greater Regretsian family, I hit the Paypal Money slot with all the enthusiam of a yarnpig loose in the Bendigo Woollen Mills.
So…. I was stunned when I heard that Paypal had suspended the payments.
Congratulations Paypal – that is utterly disgraceful.
There is apologies flowing from Paypal now, but the sour taste this brings to the Global Crafting Community – us Woollies worldwide is incredible. Paypal is one of the only options for our cottage industries of hand-dyed yarnage, hand spuns and patterns. For Paypal to betray our trust as we move to help others is sourness beyond reckoning.
