It is time to regulate paypal like a bank. The last time they were threatened with this, they suddenly got call-in numbers (where before it was web-form email only) and unlocked a lot of accounts such as mine, which had seven cents in it.
A little OT, but there is a legitimate reason why FM radios used to be completely disallowed on a flight, at least back before GPS. The old navigation system, Loran, was in the frequency range just above FM radio. If an FM radio was poorly designed, then the local oscillator could have a side-band that would land directly on the Loran band and legitimately interfere with the the navigation signal. Especially since a radio signal in a metal tube (i.e. the plane) is very "loud" to a instrument at one end of the tube.
I often wondered if the no-cell-phone rule was carry over from this.
