I love when you go to check reviews to see how long a survey takes and there are two reviews, one that says it took 6 minutes and is fair, and another one that says it took 30 minutes and everyone should stay away.
a lotta times they're reacting to diffeet\nt hits, once in a while two wildly different versions of same hit

A truer thing has never been said...
One the other day paid $2 i think, full-blown survey, then wanted 200 words written on top of that! Ummm, I get between 50 and $200 for a 500 word article, why I write half that for pennies on the dollar?
I don't mind a sentence or two of reaction, like the Pickfu hits, but don't ask me to write a fucking novel for 50 cents or a dollar
at times I've emailed requestors directly about their requests.. sorry, no, requestor, I will not write your paper for you for a quarter. I'm pretty sure they're getting away with that sort of thing seeing as how we're a minority of mturkers but it's enough to send emails to the IRB of the requestor, something I have not yet done but it's always on the table.

I would figure that if they are named the same, pay the same and are from the same day that they are the same HIT. But, figuring is how I ended up on MTurk, but that's another story. Regardless, still not very helpful in how long the HIT will take.

So many low approval ratings lately. It's not even from new accounts, just noticing tons more under 90% than I've seen before (and I always pay attention).

i thinkk i've actaully had to follow thru with the IRB twice in the fourteen years i've been on mtur. Usually the threat makes them overturn the rejection or issue a bonus. It's gonna cost them a whole lot more (time, reputation, etc) in fighting IRB than paying me a few bux

I really hate when they are in some sort of social science field and suggesting they are interested in whatever 'be nice' movement (seemingly interested in womens rights, for instance - something I care about :)

and then offering garbage pay)

Yeah, me too.
The really irnonic ones are on minimum wage, living wage, pay disparity etc, that offer 50 cents for a 20 min study. Umm, aren't you studying this subject???

$13.36 PE. Better than I expected today. I'll be in and out of mturk rest of the day. I don't really want to focus much on it at this point in the day.
