Just wanted to point out that this ANON group which is apparently "helping" by doing DDOS attacks on Paypal are hurting businesses all accross the world.
Mine for example.
Our payment transaction systems are all done through Paypal and as of about 3 hours ago I am unable to collect payments from my customer's in any sort of way.
Way to go ANON. I'm officially NOT supporting you anymore.

It is childish and will accomplish nothing other than putting yourself in the stereotype of computer geeks. I hope you're all found and face the law.

We've been using Paypal since 2002...in their defense I say the fees they charge are directly in line with what others charge...look at Western Union and American Express (which charges MORE!) for example. Most credit card companies charge merchant fees as well. We have also NEVER had an unfair experience with them and these so called horror stories usually don't give all the facts. PayPal has definitely taken the "customer is always right" line of working out issues, but for sellers that's the way business should be done anyway. Yes, you have CYA big time with PayPal, but hey, you have to in any business situation these days. We have received well over 100 payments via Paypal since Tuesday and have not had a single customer complaint, nor have we been unable to access Paypal to print over 100 shipping labels...I call a BS on the whole thing.
I'm effectively loosing thousands of dollars of business an hour because of these clowns.

Yeah wow all the little fan boys and girls are really fighting for freedom aren't they so far they have done nothing but hurt a bunch of small business wow what a great victory...
On another note how come if these folks like Anon are so powerful they never hit the real culprits? Like the banskters, federal reserve, or thier gestapo the IRS? If they really want to help humanity and prove they are the awesome feared hackers government shakes in thier boots at just hearing the name, then lets see them get in the IRS unlawful systems and take it down lock stock and barrel and stop the theft? If this is the great catalyst for change all the fan boys and girls say it is then why are they wasting thier time on private businesses ?
Or is it much easier to harm innocent people trying to make a living in the worst economy since the great depression and proclaim they are fighting for freedom while accomplishing nothing but helping thier enemy...edit on 9-12-2010 by hawkiye because: (no reason given)
