PayPal Block SoulSeek P2P App Donations

It seems Paypal is continuing its moral crusade against P2P operators

After banning several of the largest file-hosting sites, PayPal is now taking aim at one of the oldest file-sharing applications around. After 14 years doing business together, the payment processor has just cut off classic P2P tool Soulseek, noting that file-sharing tools require pre-approval, even though the mentioned policy didn't exist at the time.

PayPal is widely known for its aggressive stance towards BitTorrent sites, Usenet providers and file-hosting services, and it appears that P2P software is now receiving the same treatment.

I'm sure many folks will cry for at least 7 seconds over this decision.. NOT.

I think a look around the marketplace for an alternative payment processing company may be in order, after all I for one don't want to be supporting a company that undertakes this type of online victimisation / censorship based on mere allegations from some hollywood fat cat charity group that pays no taxes.
