Paypal You Suck – “If We Suck … We Now Face It”

David Marcus Paypal President March 2012PayPal President David Marcus responded to mounting criticism from customers by promising that things are changing at the online payments company.

 “There’s a massive culture change happening at PayPal right now,” Marcus said. “If we suck at something, we now face it, and we do something about it.”

The post was then listed on Y Combinator’s Hacker News site, where it attracted dozens more comments — mostly negative. The original post, written by Elliot Jay Stocks, a small business owner, was titled “Good riddance, PayPal.”
