Paypal keeps asking me for a W-9, never accepts it, blocks my account anyway

I have been dealing with this for three years now.  In september they decide my W9 I submitted 15 years ago is no longer valid.  I send in my W9 a dozen times because they keep sending me emails, I call a bunch in November for them to tell me nothing is wrong, ignore the messages.  Then in January get locked out of my account, get yelled at by Paypal people for my account being locked, have to spend 2 hours on hold for a supervisor, then get the whole thing resolved.

I've done this three years in a row now.

Someone please tell me you have had this problem and know the magical solutioin.  Because the morons at Paypal apparently don't understand how to fix this and I've wasted too much time on this issue.
