    Can I ask why you posted this? I appreciate your transparency, but the proportion of rejections is pretty dramatic and dismal. Are you seeing such terrible work submitted as a rule? If so, I wonder if it is because the better writers are busy working elsewhere on MTurk. I want you to get the results you seek, but something is seriously amiss. Please understand I am not attacking you; I think there is a disconnect between pay or expectations or some other factor....

    Could have been 1 rotten egg. If you look at the one from the prev day it is much lower.
