I love your site and was thrilled to hear of your “win” against PayPal. I recently had a heartbreaking experience of my own with them. I sold an old French violin to a buyer in Canada, and the buyer disputed the label. This is not uncommon. In the violin market, labels often mean little and there is often disagreement over them. Some of the most expensive violins in the world have disputed labels, but they are works of art nonetheless.

Pretty sure you didn't get the point of the article. It's kinda like your post, unique and forgotten.
The men in black are here AGAIN!

Since there are activist groups for everything and nothing these days, lets form one and make a petition and street demonstrations AGAINST THE DESTRUCTION OF VIOLINS (because theres no greater evil in this world). As long as we live, there is always going to be one of us FIGHTING for the rights of VIOLINS TO EXIST and NOT BE DESTROYED BY CORPS LIKE (who are they again...? oh yes...) LIKE PAYPAL!
This sounds really stupid... because I'm an historian and I used to play violin and... ok... so the violin got destroyed, he survived ww2, so did my piano and my grandmother (these 2 didnt get destroyed yet) so... I dont really feel shocked or offended... lol and its hardly a "YOU WONT BELIEVE IT"...
It would be a "YOU WONT BELIEVE IT" if he had sold a kidney to buy an ipod... oh wait... well... thats been done before, so... GET ME SOMETHING NEW... and shocking... like us using dogs to set off IEDs... oh wait. Ermmm... come on, just get me something really new and shocking.

I can't believe there's somebody in here that is just totally fine with the needless, wanton destruction of artifacts from ages gone by, from many, many years ago. This stuff is our cultural heritage as humans and to destroy it is bull#, especially when there was no need to do so. It's even worse if you consider FraternitasSaturni is basically ADVOCATING it and ACTIVELY DEFENDING paypal for this.
