Why doesnt PBN have a policy against "Gifting Payments"

Why does pbnation not have a policy towards sellers encouraging people to "gift" payments in particular paypal payments?

By not informing new users of this , it takes the only significant form of seller protection and throws it out the window. I dont think crowdgather and ebay directly compete in online payment processing , so why dont we stand up to this? Or are you guys waiting from a nastygram from ebay , similar to the one rollex sent you guys?

Hell maybe go as far as to infract sellers who imply to gift them the paypal in their threads.


sorry if it sounded sarcastic but I am sure this wasnt the first time someone thought of this.

TLDR: Why dont we take a hard stance against sellers asking for payments to be gifted to their paypal?

It's a suggestion, but not a hard rule as I understand it:

We have lots of rules already and we don't want to make more unless necessary. Users should take basic precautions themselves.

Plus, we don't want to police PM's since we can't see them and there's no current way to report them.

Didn't realize the pm thing .

If you guys ever did filter pms parsing them With a bucket of words algorithm may help you guys selectively target adds a bit better for maybe an increased click through rate

Sorry, no plans to snoop on anyone's PM's in any way. I can't even view a user's PM's as an admin.

why not refuse to gift any payments/not send any payments as gifts then?
