PayPal and eBay are separating and I read the same report you seem to have read about how PayPal will conduct business in the future.
I'm not happy about it either, but I think they know they have most of us by the short hairs. Truth is, the No Call list was pretty much a sham from the start. There were so many exceptions it was hardly worth the bother.
While it isn't much, unless they're selling air and/or water and they're the only place I can get those things, I'll have a list of people/companies who dared to call me and they will NEVER get a penny of my business for anything.
I think it's worth waiting to see exactly what will happen when PayPal separates officially from eBay and whether all the things suggested actually happen.
A dear friend told me a joke a couple of days ago. You may have heard it:
I was flying from San Francisco to Los Angeles. By the time we took off, there had been a 45-minute delay and everybody on board was ticked. Unexpectedly, we stopped in Sacramento on the way. The flight attendant explained that there would be another 45-minute delay, and if we wanted to get off the aircraft, we would reboard in 30 minutes.
Everybody got off the plane except one gentleman who was blind. I could tell he had flown this very flight before because the pilot called him by name, saying, "Keith, we're in Sacramento for almost an hour. Would you like to get off and stretch your legs?" Keith replied, "No thanks, but maybe my dog would like to stretch his legs."
Picture this . . .
All the people in the gate area came to a completely quiet standstill when they looked up and saw the pilot walk off the plane with the Seeing Eye dog! The pilot was even wearing sunglasses. People scattered. They not only tried to change planes, they also were trying to change airlines!
From what I can tell, most people like to live their lives by assumption, and I know that 99% of assumptions are usually wrong just like the people in the joke above overreacted without any thought, no questions asked.
It is Forbes for one, that is reporting all the dire changes that are about to come from PayPal, and they are usually credible, but I figure I can always close my account if bad comes to worse. What's the rush?
I'm inclined to wait and see if all the dire predictions for PayPal will come to pass. If they do, I can always close my account then. Why not wait until you know for sure what you're dealing with?
