    Hello respected writers,readers,administrators,moderators and all others...

    I am posting this question because it really bothers all talented writers from Serbia, and potential writers that would open an account on H.P - but they are discouraged by fact that they CAN'T register on PayPal, e-Bay ... What is the matter ? Many other countries, including some islands (really small places), countries that are really lower stationed than Serbia like (Bosnia,Albania,and etc)- NO DISRESPECT or ANYTHING LIKE THAT - but it is the real TROUBLE that people (arround 2.000.000 Internet users that would like to register on PayPal or eBay ) of Serbia are experiencing every day... Can someone tell me what it is about.. ???

    With at most respect,

    Milanovic B. aka "LaFamillia"

    Dobra.. Nice to met you.

    I come from New Zealand and the next 'Station' under us is Antarctica! smile

    So Hey... I guess you can't get a lower station than us huh? sad

    + We are surrounded by water yikes

    But Hey... You are right.... We do have Ebay, PayPal AND The Rugby World Cup smile (So don't believe the Australians if they say they won tongue )

    Sorry to hear about that station problem.. but Hey.... it affects several countries for the right reasons. Can you not use a proxy?  Maybe we could lend you a sheep or two, for that purpose... we have 40 million of them smile

    Good Luck

      It's not about proxy servers,DHCP...or whatever that is related to ISP! We have an great gateway to the Internet, with fairly-good internet speed. We don't complain about that! IT IS ABOUT : WHY SERBIAN PEOPLE (CANDIDATE FOR EU) IS NOT ON THE LIST OF COUNTRIES THAT C.A.N BE PART OF PayPal,eBay etc... ????

    Zdravo Boris,

    According to this article, it seems a lot of the problems derive from your local regulations and barriers:

    Yes, I understand everything, BUT I really can not in a fact that some country like Trinidad and Tobago HAVE the needed regulations and WE (Serbia) as an pro-European oriented country do NOT?! Do you really believe in that, or You think that there are certain politic factors that lobby for anti PayPal policy because of their OWN interest.

    Since I do not live in Serbia, I cannot say if it is an actual lobbying against Paypal by your politicians. The impression I got was more that they cannot understand the need for such measures, not having experienced how it could help them.

    I lived in Zagreb 1979-1984. At that time, I experienced a lot of xenophobia, at a personal level to me as a British national and generally towards Germans, Serbs and other non-Croat citizens of ex-Yugoslavia.

    I do not know if the same xenophobia applies to Serbs; I only had minimal contact with some people from Beograd, who were relatives of my ex (they were all ethnic Jews), plus a good friend of his in Novi Sad, and some others who were students at the Fakultet Fizicke Kulture in Zagreb, where I was librarian for about 18 months. Actually, it was the Serbs, Macedonians and Montenegrins who treated me best when I was in that job!

    I do remember visiting my ex's relatives in Beograd, and during that visit discovering the best "Turkish" delight I have ever eaten. I tried looking for the brand when I returned to Zagreb, to be told by the local supermarket "Eh, we don't stock Serbian brands here!". I still miss it, na zalost!

    Yes! And everyone think that Serbs are the ones that spread the hate to the other nations (ESPECIALLY TO CROATS)!!! The truth is, I am one 21 year old guy who looks for a better life outside of Serbia - so I am neutral , that Croats are those that actually have an "hidden" BAN to the all Serbian products.

    As someone who lived in ex-Yugoslavia in the period a bit before, during and a bit after Tito's death, I think there was a lot going on under the surface in all directions.

    I have no hidden agendas in this direction myself: I met with wonderful kindness in Lika, I loved the culture and cafes of Beograd, the students who treated me best of all when I worked as librarian came from Montenegro and Macedonia, during my time in Zagreb I came to love the music and culture of Bosnia, I also had many dealings with people in Slovenia, particularly as a translator/editor.

    Foodwise, I want that beautiful raisin Turkish Delight I found in Beograd, the crna halva I tasted somewhere in Bosnia, Licki sir, proper char-grilled cevapcici and pleskavice, the divine goose-fat"scratchings" I had in a hunter's lodge in Slavonia, and so on, and so on smile
