Why did DA take PayPal out of their options on buying core? Since it's so incredibly widely used you'd think they'd be damaging themselves by taking this option away

Terrible website wants money

I'm assuming they did that so people have to buy points in order to pay for it so they can charge more in the long run?

I wasn't even aware DA automatically rebilled now until I checked my core rebilling just for the fun of it

I believe this was the membership I got early 2016 and idek when they established this rule but I'm surprised I've only seen like one person complain about it 

DA is turning into YouTube in its own ways tbh

i dunno when but it is kind of agitating because its like theyre trying to squeeze money from people.

it really is tho, its why i stopped using anything but points, i knew something was happening

I remember DA came pretty close to crashing when they came out with CORE and everyone started boycotting it

They've done this thing on several occasions where they have this grand idea for their site and then they ask for opinions of the site's users and even when 90%+ don't want it, they would do it anyway?

At least back then they would inform us of their updates, now they seem to be changing things with no implication whatsoever which is really odd


I'm not the type to just barge around and complain about every little thing DA does because I'm not the negative and critical type, but I honestly just want to know why the do the things they do

It works fine when you're buying points, but not for core and I don't u n d e r s t a n d

If I ever needed to buy points I'd probably make a journal and trade them with someone else tbh bc the fees PP charges are far less than the ones DA charges
