Ask them, personally who they choose to do business with in my opinion is up to them.
Paypal is doing business on my behalf using my money so when they ban anyone I wish to support based on political pressure or for any other reason it is my business!
As I said, its my personal opinion and I couldn't care less who they do business with.
Commenting here is pointless. PayPal is big. They will want to compete against other payment processors. When other payment processors harbor "hateful" users, they will use that to their advantage. People want to feel safe because safety is more important than freedom. I believe freedom is more important than safety, but their PR is on the line. Hope these membership platforms find a payment processor and compete the bigger membership platform out of their position. Until then, complaining about it here won't solve anything. Go redirect your energies where they matter the most.
I am very concerned about the use of PayPal by political figures to (in any way) censor anyone. I expect PayPal to operate apolitically. If that does not happen I will no longer do business with PayPal or accept business through PayPal and will, very vocally, recommend that others do the same.
PayPal - please just process all legal payments. Please do not get yourself involved in the slippery slope of censorship. My hope is that you are just being "used" (threatened) into your current position. It would be heart breaking to think that PayPal, a company that has helped shape the Internet, is complicit with these censorship tactics.
I am not part of a political group. I am not supporting a side of a political argument. I would with same earnest defend any side against these tactics.
Please do the right thing. My few accounts probably mean nothing to you, but I plan on suspending, and if I must canceling, future business with this company unless you turn around.
