One Battle Down.....

by the Left Coast Rebel

....so many more thousands to go. When it comes to Pamela Geller and Atlas Shrugs it seems the people spoke and Paypal listened:

As many of you know, on Friday of last week, my paypal account was "restricted." After a recent review of my account they said, "it has been determined" that I was "currently in violation of PayPal's Acceptable Use Policy. Under the Acceptable Use Policy, PayPal may not be used to send or receive payments for items that promote hate, violence, racial intolerance or the financial exploitation of a crime."


I posted it over the weekend and received over a thousand letters of support, hundreds of ccs of paypal account cancellations........ the people spoke. Love that.

And so today, about an hour ago, a very pleasant and rather deliberately clueless executive called me from paypal to say it was all a big misunderstanding and Atlas would be reinstated (and the subsequent restriction of SIOA and FDI removed also).

You can read the rest. Pamela Geller still finds the entire experience disturbing at best. She also asks the question - what about smaller blogs that can't push much weight around (don't look at me, wink).

For now this is a small victory in a virtual sea of transgressions.....
