What possible purpose could the destruction of the violin serve? Even if it did, how do those Paypal assclowns know that the photograph is actually of the disputed violin?


PayPal telling someone to bust a violin isn't near as disturbing as someone actually following through. There are always people and organizations telling others to do stupid, violent things with all manner of rewards and punishments, real and imagined, promised for those who do and don't comply. That will never end. The problem is the people who obey the orders.

That's okay, I've contracted JailPal, er PayPal, to do the work for you.

They're equally disturbing to me. The destruction of a perfectly good musical instrument bothers me; that's why I posted the link to the John Hiatt song. Apart from that, its monetary value was surely more than zero to somebody somewhere. Maybe it's a way of discouraging trade in fake antiques (it's not going to work any more than did the prohibition agents busting bottles of liquor). But even if the destruction is legal and effective, I can't see a legitimate place for the likes of Paypal in it.

I'm not trying justify the pee-pee people's bizarre request. Of course they shouldn't be telling anyone to break an instrument, irrespective of what someone thinks about the label's authenticity, as a condition of…anything (btw, always loved the Hiatt song). It's just that I'm used to people/organizations saying the wackiest things. It's the follow-through I don't understand. But then, I don't see why navigation systems need to warn people not to turn onto non-existent roads and bridges.

I got you kid, I got you good I did.

Your post actually provoked some thought on my part about which was worse, if either, and I even got to thinking about the Nazis (they were only following orders), etc. So I decided to play it safe and blame everybody. If violins were outlawed, only outlaws would have violins.

Wisdom incarnate.

In retrospect though, I should have said that people (and PayPal) say the whackiest things….
