I have a private business that depends on paypal to collect funds also and have had a customer complaint on not being able to complete a transaction. I also had a problem with my account a few days ago. So because of a CIA construct lots of businesses are being hurt because a bunch of stupid kids think they are fighting the bad guys. That is the real collateral damage... Wake up folks WL is a government OPS to justify controlling the internet and all communications eventually icing on the cake for all legislation over the last several years leading up to this...

There is no way Assange read all the information he disseminated - so really he's just throwing it out there without knowing what he's throwing. You and others may want to make him some sort of folk hero - but to others, like me, he's closer to being a terrorist than a hero. Just my opinion, I respect yours, I hope you can respect mine.

Isn't paypal the middleman here?
Big brother came and stepped on his toes.
paypal said ouch, and removed their foot out from under the pressure.
Every action causes a reaction.
Let us not forget who the bad guy is here, shall we?edit on (12/9/1010 by loveguy because: edit
Using words like Big brother and bad guy never helps your argument. Surely you are old enough to realize that the world is not out to get you. Assange is the villain here and should be treated like the terrorist he is. The government so far even in the wikileaks docs released showed how much it is dedicated to protecting the welfare of its citizens and not something mischievous.

I watched this play out in the 1960's which were very much the same. Different issues but the same.

It's easy to criticize someone about the very distressing situation of losing income, and make judgments about their integrity and point fingers.
If the shoe was on the other foot, those of you who are being critical of the OP might have a different philosophy.
It's different when it's you. It's quite possible you don't know what you are talking about when it comes to his personal situation.
I hope this mess is resolved shortly.
Way to go ANON. I'm officially NOT supporting you anymore.
