Time to start shopping around, I think

Cartoonist Mary Fleener has got into trouble with Paypal, and she's not the first. This Comics Journal thread discusses inconsistencies in the way Paypal applies its acceptable use policy. Andrew Farago asks the $ 64,000 question:

Wait a minute--

To get a PayPal account, you need to have a bank account and a credit card, right?

To get a credit card, you've got to be 18, right?

Once you're 18, you can look at and buy whatever you please, right?

Am I missing something here?

Mary Fleener does not appear to be taking this lying down. Good. Paypal was a Godsend for cartoonists when they first appeared but they're not the only game in town, nor should they be.
