There's been a lot of discussion in various fora about that. The most
commonly-offered explanation is that a credit card requirement puts up
a barrier for much of the international community, where credit is
hard to get. PayPal? Well, no.... Paypal requires either a credit card
of a bank account behind it, so that's not any better. It's not a bad
anti-griefer policy, but it's bad for business.
