Because I can~
On top of Micro$oft denying the Skullgirls X360 patch AGAIN and delaying it another three weeks (this time because somebody at Konami fucked up), Paypal is holding hostage $35000 from the Indiegogo drive and Peter at Lab Zero can’t write anybody a paycheck this week.
Paypal is suspicious that if 1) Lab Zero doesn’t deliver on the DLC and 2) people start demanding chargebacks, they themselves are going to be on the hook for 700 grand — and it will be Paypal who gets fucked. There’s no other place Lab Zero could even get $700k.
So Paypal are telling Lab Zero that there’s no money coming in this week, and that “until the threat of chargebacks is ended” they should just treat whatever money they do get as if it were a loan from Paypal, subject to be recalled at anytime, and not a permanent payment… which is a step that probably shouldn’t be allowed.
What’s making Paypal screw Lab Zero like this? Well, they’re afraid of getting hung up financially if there’s too many chargebacks. And why are they afraid of chargebacks? Oh, I have an idea — MAYBE IT’S BECAUSE YOU, YOU STUPID COCKSUCKERS, WON’T STOP RUNNING YOUR GODDAMNED MOUTHS ABOUT THREATENING TO WITHDRAW YOUR DONATIONS IF YOUR FAVORITE CHARACTER DOESN’T MAKE IT THROUGH THE VOTING.
SO SHUT YOUR FUCKING TRAPS, PLEASE. YOU’RE NOT MAKING THIS ANY EASIER FOR LAB ZERO, FOR PAYPAL, FOR INDIEGOGO, OR FOR ANYBODY INVOLVED IN THIS GODDAMN RETARDED CLUSTERFUCK.
