Forbes.com executive producer Coates Bateman sent out a form for invoices to every Forbes blogger, rather than just the “small group of freelancers who are actually paid to write,” reports The Daily.

This message, The Daily says, drew at least 20 replies from writers, who were all collectively learning that some of their colleagues were receiving money for doing essentially the same work.

“Does that mean we are all supposed to be paid for our Forbes blogs?” asked one contributor. (Answer: no.)
