Internet Rages over PayPal Ruining Poor Kids' Christmas They freeze the funds, then return them MINUS their transaction fee. So Paypal's initial action is extremely douchey... Now, because of the outrage on several websites... Personally, I think it's very low of them to do that... They're trying to make amends... but obviously it's only due to the fact that so many folks are in an uproar. After all, they stand to lose hundreds if not thousands of accounts with such a gross act of greed. In all honesty... if Google Wallet or some other Paypal-like system like dwolla catches on... I'd use it. Does kinds screw me out of eBay as you pretty much can't use anything outside PayPal these days. Thoughts?
