If you were a PayPal user you would want to know about PayPal. If you saw an article about them accidentally giving a man '$92 quadrillion' then you would be aware of mistakes they make and would learn more about the risks of using PayPal and would possibly even stop using it if such a mistake could be made.
PayPal is very prone to mistakes, such as freezing accounts, randomly taking money, or crediting too much money back. Since PayPal is not a bank, it is not subject to the same laws and regulations. Many consumers don't even realize that they are giving up legal protections by using PayPal instead of a real bank. I think articles that show the mistakes PayPal makes are good for consumers in general to help them recognize the dangers of using PayPal. Then, consumers can make educated decisions on whether to continue using the very, very flawed service.
No, 'PayPal accidentally credits man $92 quadrillion' is not a story that anyone needs to read. The man did not get to keep the money. Paypal made a mistake which resulted in a man's account having the worng balance. The mistake was fixed quickly. There is nothing newsworthy about this story.
Sensationalist headlines are everywhere on the internet these days...it seems they crop up like mushrooms, or like Whack-A-Mole: try to kill one and another springs up in its place. An example of these idiotic headlines comes in the form of the allegation that Paypal gave someone $92 quadrillion dollars. Interesting news, to be sure, but if it was an accident than there's no need to waste time reading it: the headline gives everything away.
I don't think anyone needs to read this story. It's about a company that made a mistake, and there's not anyone who could benefit from this information. It is mostly only for entertainment purposes. The story itself will not prevent it from happening again, only the company can do that. Anyone doesn't need to read it, but I'm sure plenty will want to.
