This is correct.

"He is smarter than I" is the correct way. It's the short form of "He is smarter than I am." We wouldn't say "He is smarter than me am". In comparatives, what comes after the 'than' is not necessarily an object.

The "paid by" example is correct, but that's because 'by' is a preposition and we always use the object form after a preposition. "Than," however, is not a preposition.

Think of the comparisons like this:

Ryan kicks Kevin.
Ryan kicks Dave.

Ryan uses more force when he kicks Kevin.

Hence:

Ryan kicked him (Kevin) harder than me. (= harder than he kicked me).

But now let's say I, Dave, also kick Kevin, but not with as much force as Ryan did.

Hence:

Ryan kicked him harder than I. (= harder than I kicked him).

And then, when you throw in a Be verb as in the 'is smarter than' example, it changes as well since Be is not an action verb, so what comes after a Be verb is not properly an object.

The teacher is I. = I am the teacher. Both are correct grammatically.

He is smarter than I. = I am not as smart as he. Both are correct grammatically.

Heh, I'm sure it won't take too long.

Glad to see you're back. It's been a quiet few days around here.
