realmolo: MFAWG: [venturebeat.files.wordpress.com image 558x507]He just oozes asshole, doesn't he?Yeah, that's a seriously punchable face.Also, any manager/CEO that uses the phrase "that is unacceptable" is a clueless prick.
Big Merl: I kind of forgot about PayPal. I rarely use it anymore. Google Wallet has become my go-to these days.
Hyjamon: Big Merl: I kind of forgot about PayPal. I rarely use it anymore. Google Wallet has become my go-to these days.same. I used PayPal for the first time in years about six months ago to buy a subscription to try out TotalFark. Next, I receive an email two days later saying my account has been compromised and that someone was trying to use it overseas./the lack of something next to my handle should tell you how I felt about the experience.
Smackledorfer: My paypal was fine for a long while. Then one day I went in and there was a request for me to prove I was me, by sharing photo and other info.No thanks.
Marcus Aurelius: I would gladly use PayPal if they did not suck ass and had to follow rules that banks follow.
mark.jms: Marcus Aurelius: I would gladly use PayPal if they did not suck ass and had to follow rules that banks follow.Indeed. My main credit card has a "generate one-time use number" service, which every time I absolutely have to use Paypal (once a year, maybe) I generate one, update PP, and go.The plaintive "please update your credit card info, it's expired" emails from PP thereafter warm my cockles.
stpauler: "It's been brought to my attention that when testing paying with mobile at Cafe 17 last week, some of you refused to install the PayPal app (!!?!?!!), and others didn't even remember their PayPal password. That's unacceptable to me, and the rest of my team, everyone at PayPal should use our products where available. That's the only way we can make them better, and better," he wrote in the email.If that's really his email, he needs to take a business writing class. The dude doesn't know how commas work at all.
Big Merl: No kidding, I let my TF lapse but would pick it back up if I could use Google or Amazon to pay. I trust them more than I do PayPal. Plus they make it so easy, PayPal seems to be stuck in 2004 with their web design.

FormlessOne: Marcus has been trying to make PayPal go in a totally different direction since he became president almost two years ago, the spokesman said, citing a shared office environment and faster product development.This is the new push by high-functioning sociopaths looking to turn developers into generic office workers. My company is doing the same thing. No offices for developers - just managers. No dedicated testing staff - developers handle their own testing, with help from a couple of harried professional testers. No dedicated content engineering staff - developers write their own docs, with help from a couple of harried professional content engineers. As a result, we have "products" consisting of bloated, buggy, useless code, paired to completely inadequate (and, in many cases, unreadable) documentation, with a huge support staff screaming their lungs out for information.He'll get the same reaction we had - we can't retain talent, and folks are slowly quitting as unreasonable hours and workloads burn out even the more dedicated folks. I'm looking to jump ship after the end of this month, because I'm the last friggin' programmer/writer left in a global company with hundreds of employees.All he just did was yell to anyone using PayPal, "RUN! RUN, BIATCH, RUN!" He's going to manage it into the ground.
