A lot of my friends are on farmville and they kept inviting me repeatedly 
until I finally gave in. I didn't think it would be accessible so I didn't 
jump right in. It seems if you're not on farmville then you're not in the in 
crowd these days. Yes farmville does allow you to buy points with your 
paypal card so they should be held to the same standards of someone selling 
like target.
