They have been nothing but professional in all that time. The information you are being asked for it the same information I presented years ago when establishing my Business Account with PayPal. Now regular US-Based PayPal accounts are required to provide verified identification information. It's about time. Being able to bill my clients via an PayPal email invoice has been a boon for me. The bottom line is PayPal is an "Acquiring - Ban

I'm not quite sure I understand what you mean by the phrase I have underlined. By "embrace," do you mean "use the idea as an excuse for their (wrong) actions?" C: Yes, I meant exactly that.

  3. Nope, they know they are inactive, they told me. Oddly, I made all of my accounts with the same email address, so I wouldn't even be able to get in there if I tried, as there is currently an account with that email address open. I guess there's a lot of things they don't tell you and that you don't think about up front. The only way a person really sees these things is when they have a problem and go to the knowledge base on the site. Which I can't see anyone doing for something that seems so insignificant as closing an account, even though it is a big deal to close an account for some rea

I think Pay-Pal also has to abide by laws that were changed after 9-11 which they probably wont get rid of that info because the NSA wants it lol. Efforts to quell money laundering tied to terrorism. Bunch of BS if you ask me. I have also read where pay-pal at one time refused service to a company that sells VPN accounts because many of the accounts are used for illegal file sharing.. They do seem to be very drivin by pol
  5. Alright, big rant incoming, seemed like the only place to put it. -deep breath- I've had a few Paypal accounts over the years and have closed them down due to various facts. When I opened one a while back again, I couldn't add my bank information to it. They don't purge accounts and refuse to take your bank account off of the old accounts, so they basically put you into a trap. I called them about this problem, and they said that my bank account was already on three other accounts and that my "only option" now is to get a Paypal Debit Card, which he conveniently forgot to mention h
  6. Just curious now... is this all really just an experiment to see what it's like to be a woman or have you ever thought about becoming a woman in real life? Not meaning to offend you with that question or anything, but you seem really into wanting to know what it's like. And there is nothing wrong with a straight man wanting to be a woman or cross dress in real life. But all of this has really set off my curiosity meter, so I really wanted to ask.

Now I am dating myself but I remember this book which was extremely controversial at the time. A White man trying to explore the Black man's world. It was good because it helped to open and further discussion about things that needed to be discussed and dealt with. I don't know how long it remained that way, but it was if my memory serves me required r

That most women she knew were not satisfied with their breasts, that the well-endowed want to be smaller, flat-chested women want to be bigger, or they don't like the shape. She said not all women of course, but many and perhaps most, snd that girls Marisa's age were starting to think about their bodies differently, so I needed to start thinking about m

It has migrated from Carbon over to Cocoa, and it has some tweaks for the Retina displays and full screen on newer OS X releases. Other viewers should eventually get these patches too. Does Firestorm not use Cocoa yet? Firestorm seems to work pretty well for me on my Hackintosh, though I know if I was running it on a Windows partition, everything would be so much better if I was using Nvidia drivers and the new software for it, instead of the usual kexts on the Hackintosh. Was thinking about getting Exodu
  10. I was also surprised when I went on the first day of how laggy it was. The running in place and moving so slowly seemed so odd. I would have thought that after being in business for 10 years, that LL would have figured out some way by now to fix situations like this from happening. I'm not an expert in how everything in SL works, but it seems like the technology would be there to fix these issues.

My friend who I am not going to name for her privacy reasons has just gone through hell in her sl relationship. First, to start off, she was in a relationship with her boyfriend for several weeks, so their relationship was fresh and new. So they would often hook up in different places in the adult worlds in sl. Well, they were at one place and they were near a brothel. One of the moderator's realized that she was not an employee and booted her out without my fr

I can tell you it makes a difference (a huge!) if you are an elf, a demon or a toaster. I hope we can hear about his experiances. I like to try to treat everyone the same, though I am not so sure I could treat a toaster the same. I also hope that he will report back if he finds someone and does it, I'd even love to see a blog made about the experience. The whole veteran part is just so fascinating.

I do not cam or do voice. Message me for a full list of my kinks and limits ;-) Not trying to get on your butt or anything, and I know that you keep your RL and SL separate, but I have a comment to add. If you want someone to "take care of" you, that's likely going to involve the use of RL money in which a lot of people spend on here. Even if they didn't feed real money in to get Lindens, L
  14. While I agree with what the post after the OP said, I think that this is a great idea for the OP. While it won't be the full package of how it would be in RL, you will see a big difference in how people treat you. A large increase in IM's, especially if you really make yourself look good and realistic. You'll pretty much be seeing the social impact of what it's like, if nothing else. I also find it interesting that a veteran wants to see if he could handle being female. I would have thought that you have probably seen such horrible things over there that you could handle anything at this

She wants a guy who will not fight with her. I'm going to have to agree with this guy, and can't believe that he was the first person in this thread to bring it up. What could you possibly be fighting about on here? Do you have a difference in real life views on politics? Are either of you trying to be restrictive in game to the other, such as not wanting the other to frequest certain "establishments" or something? I
