PayPal Shuts Down Pamela Geller

Pamela Geller has received a notice from PayPal that she’s in violation of their acceptable use policy regarding sites that “promote hate,” and told that in order to prevent closure of her account she must remove all PayPal logos and forms from her over-the-top anti-Muslim sites atlasshrugs2000.typepad.com, sioaonline.com, and freedomdefense.typepad.com.

Geller reacts to PayPal’s ruling that she’s inciting hatred by … wait for it … inciting hatred against PayPal. She tells her readers to deluge PayPal with angry emails, and calls them “pathetic Paypal pussies.” Yeah, that’ll work.

    Something tells me a much more sophisticated response to PayPal would’ve worked effectively.

    A knee-jerk reaction overloaded with “and f*ck you, too” probably isn’t going to cause people to take her seriously about a cause she considers quite serious.

    Oh well.
