PayPal thinks George R.R. Martin is a terrorist

George R.R. Martin, author of my favourite fantasy fiction series of all time, A Song of Ice and Fire, has an interesting tale of PayPal misery in an entry from Sunday on his blog, "Not a Blog":

"PayPal Thinks I'm a Terrorist"

I've personally found PayPal to be a very useful internet service, overall, and haven't had any problems in the two years I've been a member. But I've mostly used it to process credit card payments for Ebay auctions, and I don't keep money in the account. If PayPal decided I was a terrorist and locked my account, it would have minimal effect on me.
