Paypal was never his company, his company was X.com which meged with Confinity, who, at the time had a service called Paypal. He was named CEO of the new company in April of 2000, but was ousted in October. The company renamed itself Paypal in 2001, and sold to eBay in 2002. He made money from Paypal because of the stock he got from the merger with Confinity, not from running Paypal. If your issue happened during those 7 months, it's possible but unlikely it was due to his decisions or even got to his level.PayPal treated me like crap when I was a credit card processing customer of theirs. They sleaze-bagged me in a way that really pi$$ed me off and made me look like a liar in front of my customers. So if he's the richest man on the planet, that's just great. But his company, using his approach to business, did me wrong - so he does not have my respect. I'm sure he can still manage to sleep at night despite this.
