PayPal glitch holds up legit payments

I received this statement from PayPal today:

Unfortunately, due to a technical issue, we mistakenly held some of the funds for your payments, which showed up as a “Pending” balance in your account. Rest assured, you’re not currently subject to this policy and the issue has been corrected. We know this may have been frustrating and apologise for any inconvenience.

Every payment I have received via PayPal in the last 15 months has been subject to this “technical issue”. I think it is about time PayPal compensated those people affected.

There are many alternatives to paypal out there. It's always good to have more than method as I personally know people who have gotten screwed by paypal and lost thousands of dollars in income.

Why isn't paypal, ebay's ugly sister getting sued, again? It's NOT a bank, is anti-seller. With all the bad press at paypal & ebay it's a wonder why anyone would use them.
