Now, we have the blogfather telling us that Pay Pal is intent on becoming the morality police, cutting off not just sellers but also users
who buy things it doesn't want them to: prescription drugs from unverified pharmacies, material with even a whiff of sex and gambling or lottery services. . . ..Prof. Reynolds thinks that its past time for more competition in this area.

- Storm Pay from Clarksville, TN (though they do seem to frown on sex and gambling)
- NoChex is from Leeds, London and doesn't seem to have any problem with sex or gambling (the British usually don't) and has no readily apparant prohibiton against firearms or telling the truth about the world.
- Pay By Web is anothe good choice.
