I find this an interesting issue. I believe Paypal is backed by some pretty
serious financial industry players (Weigel being one, I believe).  I don't
think they are doing this to run a shady operation.

Early on they were repeatedly hacked and attacked by financial hackers and
had to tighten up security.
I wonder if this stealth approach is one to also help improve security, keep
their security guards from getting paid off, etc.

I still belive it's a major concern, so I'm not defending their position,
but just expressing the hunch that they may be doing this on purpose.
