It’s the only thing I can think of — my efforts to order an OLPC laptop are being rejected each time I try. I’ve waited over three days and retried as many times with two different browsers, but Paypal kicks back the order each time, always referring me to the merchant.
I know it’s a U.S.-only offer, and I respect that. I have a Paypal account and a valid U.S. credit card and a legitimate U.S. shipping address. So what’s it matter where I click the buttons from?
I considered redirecting through an anonymizer of some sorts, but that shouldn’t be necessary. I have a friend in the U.S. who would be more than happy to reroute it to me, at my expense. I’ll see if the order works that way too.
