Yeah, comments like yours are partly why I waited a whole year while 
getting up the nerve to deal with PayPal before subscribing.

Well, I don't have any money in my PayPal account, and I never have.
Instead PayPal is just a clearing house allowing a regular payment to 
Paul's PayPal account from my VISA account.  It's been working fine.
I read Paul's writing that he's interested to build a broad base of 
subscribers, with the implication that it's a predictable income he's 
after.  But, you still can send him a check in the mail, if that's 
your preference.
