I just remembered. I'm afraid I won't use Paypal for anything. When I tried
to buy something off the Web using Paypal, I noticed that they added a very
small line (and also in light grey) saying "a membership fee of $1.95 will
be charged to your credit card."

That's absolutely unethical, and attempting to hide it like they did is

The only other time I tried to use Paypal was a year back, and then it
refused my transaction even though I entered all info correctly. Probably
something about international transactions.

Anyway, I don't trust them, and a Google search for "Paypal sucks" doesn't
give me any more confidence.
