PayPal Closed Someone's Account for Running Tor Relays & More June 06, 2021, 11:41:24 am PayPal apparently shut down a Tor supporter’s account in response to activities supporting Tor, according to the EFF.According to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, PayPal shut down a Tor supporter’s account used to fund Tor nodes. PayPal is a company that actively enjoys conducting financial censorship and Larry Brandt, the victim of this story, frankly should have known not to use such a company.The EFF called on PayPal to do some things in response to their handling of Brandt’s account. PayPal has no reason to enact the requested changes or concern itself with the demands of a non-profit. (One can think of the EFF as the Mozilla Foundation. There is even overlap with board members. Although Mozilla is pro-censorship when they feel like it.)The fact that Tor is even on the radar of PayPal’s censorship department is concerning and likely a sign that this ban is just the start.https://darknetlive.com/post/paypal-closed-someone-s-account-for-running-tor-relays/In other news, this man's transaction was blocked because the note included "Persian":Should have used Monero or cash.
