The Moss Piglet Dilemma: Paypal Bans Payments to Merchants Using the Word ‘Tardigrade’ | Bitcoin News

This week, the public found out that Paypal has been censoring merchants that sell items related to the name “tardigrade” just because a Balkan arms dealer uses the same name.

On September 11, Paypal once again was caught censoring merchants over the use of the name “tardigrade.” Basically, a tardigrade is an eight-legged micro-animal and people also call them “moss piglets” and “water bears.” The funny little water bears have a global fanbase and people collect all types of tardigrade merchandise.

It’s a shame that merchants have to deal with such absurd rules and a mega-company like Paypal can’t even fix the system’s algorithm to give these sellers a better solution.

Other types of merchants explained how Paypal censored them for dealing with sanctioned countries or other types of arbitrary decisions.

For years now, companies like Paypal and other payment processors have censored a number of businesses, organizations, and individual merchants.

Individuals, nonprofit organizations, sex workers, whistleblowers, journalists, and a myriad of other types of people have been barred from a variety of payment processors, as other firms like Visa and Mastercard have censored as well.

What do you think about Paypal censoring the tardigrade merchants over the name.
