PayPal is not the only method of payment. The sign-up page makes it quite
clear that there are other methods .
There have been no enquiries from any CloudMade employee or associate in the
past weeks asking about alternative ways of paying.
The sign-up curve is a smoking gun that indicates a coordinated or directed
campaign. There is nothing illegitimate about such a campaign but it
carries the appearance to many people of not acting in good faith.
