PayPal's chief of legal affairs has apologised to Cryptome after the eBay-owned payment service confiscated its funds without explanation. John Muller, ultimately responsible for setting PayPal's guidelines, says the payment company made a mistake. He adds that he was a fan and former donor to Cryptome.
Operator John Young says it's not enough. Insult was added to injury when a PR contacted The Register last week, falsely claiming the account had been restored, but more importantly alleging unspecified illegal activity.
PayPal's actions have caused damage to my reputation and Cryptome's, loss of funds and impugnment of the intentions of hundreds of supporting donors.
A meaningful PayPal response for its unsubstantiated attack on me, my web site and donors would address these serious damages and provide an amelioration commensurate with their gravity.
