    I read this on a another board!! Not sure if this is the right place to post it. If not please move! Thanks!!!

    "Just a heads up guys.. Paypal is cracking down on the gift payments. I'm sure they have seen a rise in "gifts" as of late. Use common sense when sending a gift payment. DO NOT type anything in the paypal message to seller box. I've seen messages like, "Thanks so much dude, I've been wanting to buy this for so long!" or shipping information. It's supposed to be a gift, why would there be shipping info for a gift.. I would suggest something like, "A gift from....(your board name). If paypal catches you, both parties will be banned. So this is no good for anyone. We have found a loop hole here people. Be smart about it. Just a friendly heads up"

    We had a thread about this fairly recently. Oh and as far as I know you don't get banned, you just won't be able to accept personal payments so everything will be subject to fees.
