 in response to Anora Eldorath...   
Anora Eldorath, I'm sure people from AidPage Team are actually trying to help you. Perhaps it is matter of misunderstanding, but 'It is only you' doesn't mean 'you are not welcome here', rather more obvious conclusion - perhaps there is a malicious software running on your PC and it is creating these problems for you. 
 
Looking at you recent posts it is obvious that there is additional text in the end, that appears as a piece of code and I'm rather sure you are not typing it by hand. This is just the visible side effect. Most likely there also hidden control characters that affect your pages.
 
AidPage system is constantly automatically checking for such anomalies and errors and if spotted and cannot be fixed it will be deleted. That keeps the system healthier and better working for all of us.
 
In any case this is not a thing to complain about, but a situation where you or some helper should check your PC for viruses and malware.

In desperate need of help

 in response to ICEVERYTHING...   
ICEVERYTHING, I believe the Starrshine case is an unfortunate misunderstanding, but it is not 'total BULL'. 
First of all I'm using Paypal quite frequently without any problems. Second, I'm absolutely sure that the general idea of the Paypal business is clear and fair. Third, they are not in business of stealing anybody's money. However, what Starrshine is describing is not only possible, but unfortunately it happens on time to time. 
 
In order to receive any payments via Paypal one must register with them and must link at least one bank account (and a credit card account as well in order to remove some limitations) with this registration. After they verify everything, including the bank account connection then you are ready to receive payments from third party. If the third party is an honest person (company) as you are the transactions are smooth and flawless. Unfortunately, if this is not the case and the third party pays, let say with a stolen credit card, here is the trouble. If the credit card was not reported stolen on time or the information was not disseminated all the way though the chain Paypal will allow the transaction. You will see the payment in your account and everything will good for a while. In a few days when the facts become clear for Paypal they will try to stop the transaction and to recover the amount of the purchase from your Paypal account. If in the mean time you have shipped the goods and even worst already transferred all or some of the money to your bank account, and you Paypal account is nearly empty then they can freeze you linked account and pool back the amount. Such action by Paypal even though justified from their view point could be devastating for you. It may overdraw your bank account, or stop important payments to other parties, or bring unexpected bank charges. Such freezing may take rather long time and all these troubles multiply with the time. All this coupled with sometimes abrupt, unfriendly and difficult to understand response from Paypal's customer service could easily create the impression similar to one Starrshine described. 
 
There are many 'horror' stories on behalf of Paypal related cases. However, there is always reasonable and unpleasant for you explanation. In most cases these problems could be avoided if you know and pay attention to the process and be careful to follow simple rules:
 
1. Do not hurry! 
2. Wait at least 7 business days from the finalized Paypal transaction before send any goods. I know the client is waiting…
3. Wait at least 7-10 days from the finalized Paypal transaction before transfer money from your Paypal account. I know you need them now, but believe me you are better off with this need for another week and without the problems I described above.
4. If a problem occurs talk to the customer service (do not yell). If this does not help talk to a supervisor. Be persistent and keep a log of your calls and conversations. Do not let go. Make sure you clear the case before you stop.
 
In general as with everything else apply common cense, be patient and you will avoid most of the potential troubles.

About Housing Grants

 in response to swedishkiss...   
You were correct not to give them any information! 
Nobody should ask you on the phone for money or any personal info in order to qualify you for a grant. Not to mention that it is nearly impossible someone to call you and offer you grant without preliminary written request by you.

Thoughts From Someone Who Has Seen More Than The Usual

By Jeffrey D. Barnett (a Marine officer and Iraq War Veteran):

"Before my deployment [to Iraq] I was disposed to always be active. Whether it was with work, hobbies, reading, social activities, or other things, I did not like to be idle. Now I am sometimes content to sit idle with only my thoughts. Watching the ocean, sitting in my front yard with my dog, driving at night: moments when I can contentedly reflect on life alone. Adding a few friends and a pleasant discussion to this activity is now probably my favorite pastime. I now place a much greater value on experiences, while before I almost exclusively valued achievement. And I don’t necessarily mean grand, individual achievements, but also group achievements through things like playing poker or gaming with friends.

Now, I certainly enjoyed experiences before Iraq. Going to the movies to see the latest Will Ferrell film was just as gratifying then as it is now. However, my perspective on activity has changed, and now I am content to relax and just let things happen rather than relentlessly steer every activity towards an ultimate goal. I still steer towards goals, and be sure that I am still relentless, but I now have a far more balanced desire for simple experiences. This has given me a much deeper appreciation for my experiences and those who share them with me, because I know they are just as mortal as I am.

The second change runs slightly counter to the first, causing disconnect with others: After experiencing real chaotic violence and seeing how ugly humanity can be it’s difficult to get excited about some things the rest of the world views as important. For example, about a year after I returned from Iraq a new video game was released and heavily criticized in the media for brief scenes of semi-nudity, I remember feeling frustrated that some of my friends were deployed at that time and probably facing worse circumstances than I had, yet America was in a tizzy over whether its children should be exposed to alien buttocks. At the end of the day, after you’ve seen school children walk in a single-file line past the dead body of a man executed at gunpoint, it’s difficult to care about the social degradation caused by bare buttocks in a video game."
