Literacybase no longer paying members for content

While some forum owners may invest their own money initially for getting content from members , in the long term it is not very feasible. Literacybase was a website which paid members for posting in the forum, and also contributing articles.
However after paying for a few months, they have also stopped paying members .
Minimum payout is $10
There are a few members who sometimes post in the forum and are complaining about non payment.
