On January 22, 2015 Memory Hole Blog received an email from “PayPal Brand Risk Management,” stating that it is closing MHB’s account used to receive donations. Memory Hole has had a relationship with PayPal for two years. Suddenly, however, the company has chosen to unilaterally discontinue MHB’s account services.
Here is the key passage from the email announcing discontinuation of the account:
Due to the nature of your activities, we have chosen to discontinue service to you in accordance with PayPal’s User Agreement. As a result, we have placed a permanent limitation on your account.
