Several of my blog buddies had their accounts suspended/frozen from [tag]PayPerPost[/tag] over different issues. Some of these are :
1) Bad Inglish
2) Back-to-back posts with no interims
3) Back-t0-back PPP posts with other paid posts
4) Made for PPP blogs
I actually have a list of those who were suspended for weeks and sometimes days. However, they prefer to remain anon. and did not mention it. What I heard are through MSN from the bloggers themselves. Let’s just say that I am not one who takes sides. I know some of these posties deserved it because their mistakes were habitual and driven by greed. Meanwhile, several were due to ignorance because they never read the fine prints.
But what annoyed me are those who are innocent but had to be put through the grilling session. I had stated in another post that if PPP is driven by human reviewers, then, they have to rely on their human reviewers. After all, these are paid staffs.
However, it is not always the case. The complaints come from posties themselves. I would say that most of them were due to some self-righteous posties who enjoy policing. They made it their life mission to save the world by sniffing out others’ wrong doings. You can almost feel their squeals from across the globe when they finally find another [tag]Asian[/tag] making mistakes.
Well, you can argue all you want that this is just my disgruntled post. I am not disgruntled. I am the kind of friend who stood by her friends and when I see not one, not two but several of my friends being wrongly ‘researched’, I will stand by them and speak up. I want to say, “PPP, all these witch hunting leaves a bad taste in our mouths.”
Here’s one email from PPP to shopping mum :
I have unlocked your account. I reviewed your submitted posts and have not found a single item to reject a post for, let alone any purposeful Terms of Service violations. Often times when we suspend someone they begin to point fingers at other Posties. Obviously we have to investigate any possible Terms of Service violations, and that’s why I had to “freeze” your account. I didn’t find any violations so I do apologize for the inconvenience.
Thanks again for your patience and understanding.
Also- You are the first person to be falsely accused. Thank you for being a good Postie!
And another case is from Wuching :
The email continues to explain that it was brought to their attention by some advertiser that my old blog at Blogspot which I use for writing paid posts breach their Term of Service. That all of my posts are all for pay-to-blog sites as well as noted the user of unoriginal content in place of interim posts. So [tag]PPP[/tag] has to lock my account for a week while they â€˜researchâ€™ into this matter. So now I cannot write for PPP!
who felt vindicated:
Yay! Iâ€™ve been vindicated! Not guilty! Justice has been served! This morning I received another email from PPP telling me that theyâ€™ve done their â€˜researchâ€™ and found that my blogâ€™s not found to be among the blog-for-pay blogs so theyâ€™ve re-activated my account!
To those self-righteous folks who went out of their ways to nit-pick, I say to you, “What business is it of yours? A good blog or bad blog is not determined by how many paid posts the person have on their blogs. For fark’s sake, just look at the page you paid for. I am sure it is a meagre five bucks and you think that gives you the right to condemn a person?” Nah, middle finger for you.
Well, sadly PPP hasÂ been ruled by dissatisfied posties more than regular company’s rules and regulations. All these really made me glad that I have so many other sources of income.
So, do you know anyone whom had been suspended due to wrong accusations?
