Anonymous wages legal protest against Paypal - This 8-Bit Life

Leland Flynn

I’m watching this unfold on twitter as we speak. It looks like @Anonymous and @LulzSec (who recently combined forces for #OpAntisec) are mounting a protest against the Paypal online payment service. They are currently urging people to cancel their accounts and donate their respective balances to a charity of their choice. I’ve seen no definitive info on whether or not their will be a direct attack on any Paypal systems but perhaps it’s better to be safe than sorry. I have seen quite a few reports from users on twitter stating that their ability to close their account is being blocked outright and that even the guide to removing an account has been taken down. I did just confirm for myself that the guide at least is currently available. If you can’t delete your account it may at least be advisable to temporarily remove your credit card from the account. From what I have read here on the YourAnonNews tumblog it seems that #OpPaypal is in response to Paypal’s decidedly unethical business practices and the recent arrests of suspected Anonymous members. Check twitter for #OpPaypal and follow @YourAnonNews on twitter to stay current on this. I’ll update this post as needed.

    Just to put one thing in perspective: the drop in eBay's stock is coincidental to the #OpPaypal effort. Compare it to the other major indices and it's right in step with the drop in the rest of the market.

    Indeed. Someone pointed this out to me on twitter a little bit ago. I was too quick to draw a correlation. But I'd imagine that it may have at least had some impact.
