Radioeng, maybe you should look into the amount your credit card company has you (arbitrarily) limited to for your PayPal account. Happened to me once and all it took was 1 phone call for them to increase the transfer limit to Paypal from what it had been initailly authorized for to the spending limit on the credit card. You could have a ridiculously low amount that was originally given to you like $200 even if you have $10K left on your spending limit on your credit card. No more problems since then some 3 years ago. They will not increase your transfer limit unless you specifically ask for it.
Why let facts or common sense get in the way of your opinions.

WTF!!! They want direct access into my bank account, which they make hard to set up and ain't happen NO WAY IN HELL!! So now it takes me three business days to transfer money in. I always did prefer to pay with Money Orders and since they nixed the credit card they made it so there was no reason to use them.

With this new coming rule, I'm forced to screw around with them and all their scammin' fraud practices!! Starting to sound likely, with it being difficult to use, that I won't be using them unless there's something I'm really hot for!

What a great way to build business...make it hard to do... When I see paypal only on an auction listing, I've just been closing it and moving on!!

Let me make a stupid suggestion..... I did this already, and it works GREAT !!
Go open another checking account at your local bank, join them through your internet online banking, then you can transfer $$ from your main account to your new ONLINE checking account any time you want. That way they never have a line to your real account.
It works GREAT, and keeps them out of your main account. It also work great for wire transfers too...

Actually it wasn't my credit card that made up the problem, it was Paypal. Their whole thing with this is just bull of course. They didn't like me dropping in money and then paying it right out for an auction purchase. They want you to have to leave money laying around in their accounts.
Good idea on the seperate account James. It's actually what I did. But I haven't figured out how to attach the credit card for it, to my PP account. I can transfer money from the new bank account, but that takes the 3 flippin' business days.
Generally best not to take me too serious, Rabbit!! I went to Denver's RMAF a couple years ago with a buddy, Jeff. He'd convinced a couple of gals in one room to pose for him. Then I'd shot a funny face at him later in front of a huge wall poster of a giant tube amp. He sometime later, for no particular reason did a quick cut and paste and sent it during some other email conversation. It made me laugh so hard...many different times!! Both of us just bust up when we talk about it!! It's just irreverent enough to be fun to use....
I was there "At the Fest!" Hope you were too!
