Sadly, this is quite typical PayPal behavior. The best thing you can do is AVOID PAYPAL AT ALL CO$T$... unless you like being nickle and dime'd and hassled around. And they wonder why so many of their users talk sh!t.
I'll tell you what. If I was part of an advanced alien culture/race, (more evolved than us, etc), and looked carefully at our Earth, and what is going on these days and how things are ran.... I'd pass up this crazy-house without any hesitation.
Have fun with the Bing! crap. VZW shoved that down the throats of some (or possibly most, I'm not certain) BlackBerry and Droid users. Come to use my phone one day, with the Bing! app icon on my BBs "desktop", and the default search in the web browser set to Bing as well.....
Dammit, let me have my Google, please. (In all fairness, I can still use Google... I was just ticked at the fact they went ahead and shoved Bing on my phone)
These images are posted on many of the various radio forums quite frequently.
I've had the chance to meet the guy in person at various hamfests around the country. Just about every radio has it's own antenna and, more surprisingly, they actually work!
So, school officials simply "frown" on "Kick a Jew Day"? Is that to say that at one point it was allowed to even occur on campus? What?
Seems like something you would forbid more than just simply frown upon if you ask me.

The move is an acknowledgment of the first viable competition from Linux to Microsoft's Windows client business, due mainly to the use of Linux on netbooks, which are rising in prominence as alternatives to full-sized notebooks."

Officials in Papakura, New Zealand have come up with a billboard that bleeds when it rains. They hope it will encourage drivers to slow down when the weather makes conditions dangerous. Since the billboards have been erected, there hasn't been a fatal accident in the area.
Today Google announced that they're removing the "beta" label from Gmail, Google Calendar, Google Docs and Google Talk. They said, "We've come to appreciate that the beta tag just doesn't fit for large enterprises that aren't keen to run their business on software that sounds like it's still in the trial phase." Quoting the NYTimes:
"'Obviously we haven't had a consistent set of policies or definitions around beta,' said Matt Glotzbach, a director of product management at Google. Mr. Glotzbach said that different teams at Google had different criteria for what beta meant, and that Google felt a need to standardize those. ... Practically speaking, the change will mean precious little to Gmail's millions of users. But it could help Google's efforts to get the paid version of its package of applications, which includes Gmail, Calendar, Docs and other products, adopted inside big companies."
