I'm having a hard time buying a subscription.

Okay, I'm not computer savvy by any means.  But I've been trying to purchase a subscription for three days and it's not working.  My PayPal account is set up and fine, and I called PayPal to find out what's going on and they said that everything is fine on their end and that I may want to contact the other party about it.  When I click the little rectangular PayPal button I get directed to the PayPal website with this message:

Quote:

Sorry — your last action could not be completed

If you were making a purchase or sending money, we recommend that you check both your PayPal account and your email for a transaction confirmation after 30 minutes.

If you came to this page from another website, please return to that site (don't use your browser's Back button) and restart your activity.

If you came from PayPal's website, click the PayPal logo in the upper-left corner to return to our home page and restart your activity. You might have to log in again.

Like I said before, my PayPal account is fine.  Can anyone tell me what's going on and how I can buy a subscription?

Liberate your mind. Fuck religion.

         The someone else was me.   I managed  to buy in for one (1) month when I was trying for a full subscription, all this after having a gold membership for over a year.  The problem is actually three (3) way,  RRS,  Paypal  and my own computer illiteracy.  I am going to try again for the fulltime membership on November 2,   the first is a Sunday.   If I had any tallent with computers I wouldn't be in this situation in the first place.

Yah, that was me who was canceled despite being current. As I understand matters, the forum software does not automatically shut off people if they stop paying. So he flipped a switch to purge to older subs. As luck has it, my email addy for the site is not the same as my paypal account so he did not know to put me back on manually after the switch.

 

If you click on his avatar, that should bring you to an info page on his account and from there, there is a link to email him with your info. From your description, it sounds like he may have turned off the thing that let's him automatically accept payments, possibly as a software dependency from the other switch. If so, he may not even know that he did it and he will be hurting for cash if he doesn't connect it again.

I did exactly that.  Then it brought me to this page that said:

And then there's a little rectangular button, and when I click the button, it brings me to the page I described in my first post in this thread.

Big boys?  You're referring

Big boys?  You're referring to yourself.  I'm tired of having you around.  We'll see how much longer everyone else can stand you.

Makes sense.  God loves me enough to fuck with my computer, but the starving people in Africa dying of AIDS don't measure up to his liking.  What a great guy. *sarcasm*  Seriously, you're boring now.  You might have been something to laugh at and entertain ourselves with a few days ago but now you're like a hooker who won't leave.

Liberate your mind. Fuck religion.

Thanks Brian.  It'll have to wait for this weekend though.  After balancing my checkbook it seems I overspent at the strip club for darling boyfriend's birthday    .  So it looks like I'm broke until payday.

Liberate your mind. Fuck religion.

A hooker who won't leave.

I've never rented a hooker.  But I have bought the services of many whores.  They're annoying when they do what they were paid to do but then they won't GTFO.  I'm sure you've had the same experience yourself.

Liberate your mind. Fuck religion.

We both went.  We go there for his birthday every year.  I pay for the drinks, stage dances, and lap dances and I might get one or two myself.  It's lots of fun.  My boyfriend is such a gentleman that I have no problem with it.  I have as much fun as he does.

This means that if anybody manages to subscribe to the RRS, then they've defied God. Jeez, God is a weakling. 

 

Our revels now are ended. These our actors, | As I foretold you, were all spirits, and | Are melted into air, into thin air; | And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, | The cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, | The solemn temples, the great globe itself, - Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve, | And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, | Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff | As dreams are made on, and our little life | Is rounded with a sleep. - Shakespeare
