I would have liked to contribute to TDE but I could not log into my
PayPal account.  The apparent reason is that my account is registered
in Canada; whereas I am in Thailand for the next three months.  The
questions raised by this odd behaviour who or what caused it and why.

I have been in Thailand already for two months and made several Pay
Pal payments with my Canadian account to purchase various goods and
services domiciled in Europe and Asia.  Last evening I made several
Skype calls to Pay Pal and spent over an hour last evening finally
talking -- once I got beyond their useless voice mail response -- to
five different Pay Pal people.  One told me that accouding to their
'system' my account was not blocked. Another thought that maybe
because I was in Thailand I could not use my Canadian account there
even though I had already done so.  The other three did not understand
what I was talking about.  All is typical for what passes as 'service'
these days, I suppose.

As I mentioned most of my international payments while in Thailand
were successful. One however was not -- a payment to a retailer in
Thailand. It consequently seems possible to me that the presumptive
receiver of the payment may be able to limit geographically the areas
of the world from which he will accept payment -- possibly because of
perceived shipping difficulties, risk of money laundering or other
similar lame excuses.

Is Trinity able to receive donations from everywhere regardless of the
location of the payer, whether physically located in the country where
his Pay Pal account originates or elsewhere?
