Recently Smorty holds the payment of some of the bloggers whose blog post URLs were not found when they recheck them again. I was stuck in that campaign as some of the databases of my blogs have been lost due to the DOS attack in my server. And therefore about $380 of my payment has been kept on hold by Smorty. I have to re-post all the lost blog posts so that I can get my payment and continue with the Smorty account.
It was really weird to re-post all those blog posts again. I did all those blog posts about 8-9 months ago and they have lost due to some unfortunate accident of server of attack. I know the terms and agreement of Smorty and according to it, all the blog posts will be online forever but if they have lost unfortunately after a year or something due to server problem, then it is reasonable.
But Smorty show strictness and now I finally completed all the tasks again by investing about a month to re-write all the lost posts of Smorty. I was supposed to get paid $148 after the completion of hold tasks but Smorty paid me only $130. Still I couldn’t figure out why Smorty deducted $18 from my account. It is such a little amount but now I do not want to let Smorty to gain even a penny after their move.
