Submission + - Google Checkout TOS Friday Massacre 1

cmkeane writes: Google has changed its payout schedule for checkout sellers. If a seller account is linked to the android marketplace, then payouts now will be on a 15 day delay for the month following the payment, rather than on a 2 business-day continuous schedule. This appears to apply even if you don't sell anything on the marketplace. And to add insult, they emailed notice on February 11 for a change effective February 6.

For a non-profit like I work for, we used google checkout to handle our credit card transactions because the cost of PCI compliance, etc, we needed to offload it. And we can't afford to ship physical goods with google holding on to the cash for up to 45 days, So off to evaluate the other competitors in this arena. What are others' thoughts on similar services provided by paypal, amazon, etc?

Not to mention their link in the email to: is coming up as a page not found, Way to stay classy.

Internet Dismantling the State Church In Finland 547

An anonymous reader writes "A Finnish secular web site that facilitates electronic resignation from the Finnish state church gained wide attention in the media this week. A gay rights TV panel discussion was followed by thousands resigning from the church. On Wednesday, 2633 people resigned through the web site, which is more than all the resignations in July. The Internet is secularizing the Finnish with increasing speed; over 90% of resignations in Finland go through the site administered and marketed by hobbyists driving Finland towards a secular, non-religious state."
