But after a nearly sleepless night worrying about that issue, I began to think about what else can cause us a lot of pain as people who earn their livings on the web.
Pay Pal especially. If Pay Pal cut you off, what would you do? Would there be a lot of hand wringing? I know I would do it.
I know from personal experience that you can be cut off at the knees without recourse. I'm not saying that this usually happens without cause. Yet it just doesn't seem fair. I also think of John Reese's problems at Facebook, though I'm sure that was just a big dent in John's armor, not a fatal collision.
Are there any really good alternatives to the Pay Pal system (never forgetting its umbilical cord attachment to eBay)?
