But PayPal is far more than a method of soliciting donations.

Most ATM cards are either MasterCards or Visas these days. You could just as easily use one of those, and have the money sucked out of your checking account.posted by aaron at 11:40 AM on February 6, 2001
I rushed to Amazon to change my settings so it won't pester me by name. And I noticed that they cheerfully and helpfully happened to automagically check for me the boxes for "Send me several different varieties of shitloads of spammy email", which I then had to carefully uncheck before submitting.
If anything I am FAR LESS likely to give to someone who bugs me by name. To me, in so doing, such a person has essentially branded "ASSHOLE" on their own forehead in my mental picture of them.
And besides that - Amazon bad. Yuck. Ew. :(posted by beth at 2:27 PM on February 6, 2001
My, that's quite charitable of MH, since they just laid off most of their staff yesterday. If anyone needs AHS, it's them.posted by aaron at 5:29 PM on February 6, 2001
But not at J. Random User's site, okay?
My assumption of an anonymous (or relatively anonymous) browsing experience is totally destroyed, and that pisses me off. It may not be a *typical* reaction, mind you, but I don't care how many other people share my opinion. I do care that I have to jump through several hoops to make the damn thing stop!
Who are all you people who don't mind any random site acting as though it knows your name? I don't understand how you give away your privacy so easily...posted by beth at 10:21 AM on February 7, 2001
