Paypal boycott

40,000 is a disapointingly small number. However, perhaps more did as I did. When Paypal blocked the wikileaks transfers, I simply emptied tha account and stopped using the service.

Visa and Mastercard are more problematic, so the 'Beast' still gets fed. To that end I had enquired whether DataCell was able to provide a 'Stand Alone' credit card solution. At this time I have not recieved any answer from DataCell. I live in hope. I understand that the proliferation of Visa and Mastercard terminals would constitute a hurdle, but it should still be possible. If we cannot break the monopoly of the banks and their tapeworm parasitic existence, they will eventually own everything.
