PayPal says sorry to Cryptome

No you're not

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

PayPal's chief of legal affairs has apologised to Cryptome after the eBay-owned payment service confiscated its funds without explanation. John Muller, ultimately responsible for setting PayPal's guidelines, says the payment company made a mistake. He adds that he was a fan and former donor to Cryptome.

Operator John Young says it's not enough. Insult was added to injury when a PR contacted The Register last week, falsely claiming the account had been restored, but more importantly alleging unspecified illegal activity.

Writes Young:

PayPal's actions have caused damage to my reputation and Cryptome's, loss of funds and impugnment of the intentions of hundreds of supporting donors.

A meaningful PayPal response for its unsubstantiated attack on me, my web site and donors would address these serious damages and provide an amelioration commensurate with their gravity.
