All right, I laughed every time I saw the picture of Aldie & Michelle, and it actually got me to click on the "donate" link a couple times, but I was overcome by ennui every time the PayPal page told me I had to update my credit card information. My hands are up here at the keyboard; my wallet is all the way back there in my pocket; you know how it is.

But Derk's mom!? Are there no depths to which you people will sink? The concept of playing fair means nothing to you??

Now PayPal has my current credit card information, and additional address & purchase histories are being analyzed & aggregated into their existing models of my consumer psychology. They will quickly determine that, for any multinational corporation desiring control over my behavior, Derk's mom is an even more powerful talisman than pink frosting or cute fuzzy puppies. Now I'm not going to be able to go anywhere without personalized ads using Derk's mom to make me buy airline tickets or car insurance.

I hope the hole where your conscience used to be is nice & spacious, because my family & I will need a place to stay once all my money is in the hands of PayPal's shareholders.

I am my adopted brother's father's father's second wife's first husband's son's son, and he is my father's father's wife's third husband's first wife's son's son. So, we would have been step step cousins even before the adoption, except I was minus a few years old.

But to answer the question, no.

Why would anyone in their right mind give PayPal their personal information?

A number of reasons, but really is this the right place to have that conversation?? Its completely off-topic.

Oop, sorry. It was just sort of rhetorical anyway. My apologies for the derailment.
