Last night I submitted a hub called Standardized Tests Do They Really Determine Who Will Be Successful. It wasn't featured (don't know if the article could even be found if it's not featured) but I can tell by how someone voted on my poll that they disagreed with what I wrote. Perhaps the article didn't meet their writting criteria or nobody cares about standardized tests. I have a feeling no one liked what I said.
Maybe someone from MTurk was having a bad-hair-day.
As far as I understand from the guide notes produced for MTurks, they are supposed to produce ratings that agree with those made by HP staff.
However, I assume that this works on some sort of general average basis. Thus, provided MTurks churn out standardised ratings 99% of the time, it is my suspicion that now and then they could easily slip in a malicious rating to kill a hub with which they disagree because of their political, religious, racial or other prejudices.
