Do you have any examples of negative publicity leading to paypal correcting their mistake? I've never seen anything like that in any of the stories about paypal freezing accounts, even the fairly high profile ones.

A few days ago they reinstated the account of Courage to Resist, a Bradley Manning defense fund. The organization seems to think it was because of the pressure from bad publicity: http://news.cnet.com/8301-13578_3-20036476-38.html

I'll keep donating to the Hang Bradley Manning as a Traitor fund.

Thanks tho!

I do believe they fixed the issue with regards to minecraft.
