PayPal’s new ‘acceptable use policy’ (AUP) gets rapidly retracted, and the online bank-ish claims it never intended to release it in the wild. But the purported mistake got yanked only after folks noticed that PayPal intends to fine you — by confiscating up to $2,500 from your account — for infractions of “misinformation, intolerance, and hate”.
Will this PR blunder keep their AUP in the company safe forever, or are they merely awaiting a more propitious moment to activate it, and start picking our pockets?
