    I don't like PayPal; read lots of less positive stories about. Is there another way ? Can I send you a iTunes Gift Card ? Would you accept a regular CC ?

    Or you could make an app for it ... ok; Apple would get a cut ...

    Is this info posted somewhere permanently? I set up a PayPall account just for the purpose of joining and don't like the idea...Of PayPall, that is...

    We've been sending advice on request since what we suggest has been evolving and can depend on what the issue is. There's no ideal solution since the membership system is triggered by PayPal transactions.

    In addition to use an account, MR can also setup Paypal to take credit card. No need to create a PayPal account.

    Evidently, not directly, otherwise MacRumours may worry about PCI.

    You can use a credit card without creating a PayPal account, but you still have to use PayPal's services. That's what some users object to.
