I don't have any problems with people paying me via PayPal -- PayPal provides a 
service and they deserve a piece of the action.

In fact, I never have problems with people donating $5 to my cause (me) via my 
site -- and it happens. For example, I had one guy donate $100.

I'm waiting for someone to better that. :-)
