Tiger's one-sided Web conversation

Posted: 08:40 PM ET

When they're not trolling TMZ, people surfing the Web for updates on the Tiger Woods' scandal go to Woods' own Web site, where on late Friday afternoon he posted a statement saying he is taking an indefinite hiatus from professional golf "to focus my attention on being a better husband, father, and person."

The site, which has seen a huge spike in visitors since Woods' post-Thanksgiving traffic crash, is also where Woods posted a much-publicized Dec. 2 apology under the euphemistic headline, "Tiger comments on current events."

If you're scoring at home, in the past nine days that makes two comments by Tiger - and more than 24,000 comments by fans and other visitors to the site, which has become perhaps the leading Web forum for people expressing their support or disgust over his behavior.

Twenty-four thousand comments - considering that a popular blog or news site is lucky to get 500 comments on a post, that's pretty remarkable. They run the gamut, from "Let the healing begin" to "I will not look up to a disgrace like you!" to "please read some Deepak Chopra." Most of the comments, however, have been supportive.

Is Tiger reading any of them? Who knows? Either way, it's pretty much a one-way conversation. But until Woods emerges from seclusion to discuss his sorry situation, it's a conversation that plenty of people seem more than willing to have.

I run a vape shop website directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the United States that likewise offers CBD products. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have requested us to get rid of PayPal as a payment solution from our vape shop web directory. We do not offer for sale CBD product lines like CBD oil. We simply offer promotion and marketing solutions to CBD firms. I have checked out Holland & Barrett– the UK's Top Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a close look, you will see that they offer a relatively considerable series of CBD goods, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a payment solution. It emerges that PayPal is applying double standards to many different companies. Due to this constraint, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related internet site. This has restrained my payment options and presently, I am greatly reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have checked with a lawyer from a Magic Circle law practice in London and they said that what PayPal is doing is absolutely against the law and discriminatory as it ought to be applying an uniform standard to all companies. I am yet to check with an additional lawyer from a US law practice in London to see what PayPal's legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could offer me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD firms.
