If MNL only uses paypal as an intermediary then paypal sets the rules.

My advice to you: it is safe to open a paypal account if you DO NOT link any of your bank accounts.
Also do NOT register a bank debit-credit card with them. They took $300 from my bank account, through a card I had added as a secondary funding source, after their own MasterCard company refused to pay a scammer, to pay that scammer for a fraudulent transfer. I kid you not. I've been fighting it for 8 months, and they refuse to pay it back. PayPal is a quasi-criminal operation.

I'm not sure I understand your details but I most certainly agree that it is risky to give payPal authorized access to outside accounts because in any transaction where there is a dispute two things are certain: paypal will not lose money; and paypal will charge the side that meets the business goals of payPal rather than put much effort into trying to sort things out.

Ebay is the same, by the way. Circa 2019 they are biased towards the buyer but the pendulum swings back and forth.

I paid as well, and I tried that contact link, but neither option has worked. How long does it typically take?

It can take a few days. Mike handles this stuff, and we usually see him posting here only once in a blue moon, although he monitors the site more often than that. Still, in these times...

If I post pictures on here and let the paid membship lapse do they vanish when my account expires?
I second this question. I hope answer is no, and discussion attachments will remain visible to all members.

Can I buy permission to send private messages, by donating/becoming a premium member?

My pictures are still up and I'm pretty sure my membership expired.
I don't know about the private messaging thing.
