Thread abandoned, Thank you to all of your support. but my time with bitcointalk has unfortunately come to an end.

I leave you all with a very funny youtube video for your comic relief.

Giant run-on paragraph, TL;DR, attention-deficit is such a gyft

Came in with genuine interest in what was about to be discussed.

Leaving with no additional information.  Before you go ahead and sue someone, I suggest you learn how to write adequate English paragraphs.  Paperwork is crucial in legalwork.

TL;DR summary:  

PayPal has been putting holds on my accounts and preventing me from accessing my own funds because I am selling miners.  I think Paypal is doing this because they regard bitcoin as competition.

I am suing Paypal.

I must say I didn't quite get to the end but paypal are an awful company to deal with. Too bad there are no alternatives that can compete  Sad

As a lawyer let me suggest (this is not legal advice) to be careful what you write on here as it might come up in the lawsuit. Good luck!

+1, I just sat down at my computer and want to read this, but that whopper of a paragraph is intimidating.  Before I get to it...good luck with the lawsuit...nice to see that you are really taking a stand Smiley

Good advice man, but pretty much everything stated here will be used in court already and if a judge wants to punish me for encouraging other people to stand up for themselves. i dont think i would want to win in his courtroom anyways. To me its not about the money, i am more than bitcoin wealthy, enough so i quit my day job and just sit all day selling on ebay and stuff and i am president of our local bitcoin group which is a full time job in itself with now over 280 members.

For me it is about the principal of the matter, this sort of white collar theft cannot be allowed to go uncontested. I put in the time and hours to make some noise and make people aware they do have options, and maybe other people will stand up for themselves too.


For the rest of you, my deepest apologies about the run on paragraph. I think something went wrong when i hit the preview button because it had proper (or close to it) paragraphs per thought process. i am about to head to bed, but i will try and get at it in the morning and make it more readable. so sorry guys. another one of those moments where technology gets the better of me. kind of like an iPhone, you try to take a picture, and instead it orders you a pizza.

Amen to that by the way, i gave my lawyers 200 BTC back August for retainer, come October one of them (jokingly) proposed to me. Why do my own dirty work when people will do it for bitcoin. all i had to do was follow their instructions.

Keep up the good fight TerraHasher, and very clever to hoist them on their own call recording policy!

Hope you crush them!

I actually read the whole thing. But yes, paragraphs would have helped. Wink. Cliff notes version was excellent. This is going to be a HUGE uphill battle. If if you win, this will continue to go uphill through the appellate courts for years. Unless of course they or you decide to settle. I'm happy someone is finally going to take them on.

I wish you the best of luck.

Nice work TerraHasher and best of luck!  Please keep us posted.

Great summary article, with punctuation, paragraphs, and even upper case letters. Smiley. I terra will continue to update via this forum as much as his attorney will let him. But as one poster posted, be careful what you post. You dont want to jeopardize the lawsuit at all because you know their "team" is digging up anything they can on you, wife, family, dog, kids, etc.

Cool.

Bitcoin > Paypal, and I hope you will sue the shit out of them.




In theory, there's no difference between theory and practice. In practice, there is.
