    ...still nothing?


    Seems like this is the kind of issue that doesn't necessarily require ten days to resolve...

    Hi sir,

    You have yet to reply to the private message I sent you. The football is and has been in your field. After you provide the info requested, I can overturn it in seconds.

    Ahh, okay. I just saw that you could not retrieve that info... Sorry, I receive about 30 PMs per day on here and stuff occasionally gets lost.


    Let me do some digging.

    I can understand your frustration, but it doesn't matter how big the person is or the entity. Even very large, global companies ask people to write fake reviews.

    I have no illusions that this will be allowed to stay on the forum, so delete it if you will. I have screenshots of this entire thread.

    Fake reviews are against every TOU on every site, everywhere. Amazon is especially harsh on them.

    I'm sorry, but when it comes down to it, your integrity is all you have. When all the illicit money you earn lying to people so they will buy crappy products is gone, you will have nothing.

    I will report any fake reviews I ever find. I just reported a bunch to Amazon because they were SO OBVIOUSLY fake. If they were yours, I guess you don't have to worry since you have already gotten your money, right?

    People like you make the internet unsafe and make ME sick. Period. I'll be leaving this forum now, and never coming back, since I now know what the owners are about. You are a dishonest, disgusting man.

    Just FYI, these "reviews" aren't being posted on review sites, such as amazon or anything. They are being posted on "personal" sites. EG: The person who reads them will think that the author of the blog/website is the one writing them. I see nothing wrong with that at all. Who are you, to tell someone how they should or should not depict a company on their own personal webpage?

    Code White is full of it

    I wrote several well written original articles for Code White US and was rejected. Later I found my words posted in exact chunks as I had written them (they tried to chop it up and make it seem like it wasn't mine). This company lies, has incredibly unreasonable standards, and is not worth your time and effort. DO NOT do business with them in any form. They are not to be trusted, despite the silver tongue of this guy Andy on this thread. Don't believe a word he says. Code White US is a scam and is full of it.

    I will dig up your article and provide feedback on why it was rejected.

    Nope. MY WORDS. NOT ANYONE ELSE's. Rejected. Then used. Feel free to have the last word seeing as how you are so insecure you are going to have to have the last word. I said my truth and will not waste time with this fool anymore. Chow.

    Hi "John"

    I found your article:

    The HIT instructions clearly state that you aren't to write in FIRST person and specifically to not use "I". Please follow our instructions next time and your work will probably be accepted.

    I strongly caution people against writing for Code White US ... The entity -- whatever it is -- steals copy. I do not make statements like this lightly but I say it without reservation in regard to Code White US. If you have saved work you have done for them, and it has been rejected, I strongly encourage you to Copyscape your work and I am certain you will find it posted on a website. This type of conduct is deplorable and unacceptable.

    No ... they actually do not ... reputable companies never write fake reviews ... only bottom dwellers engage in this type of practice at this juncture in time.

    What's funny is that people flock to a site that is supposed to be for mTurk workers that is ran by a requester...a scumbag requester at that. He's even charging you for basic forum functions.

    I encourage you to send your complaint to our legal team if you believe that we have stolen content from you. We never steal work and we never use rejected content.

    I know that we don't put rejection messages in our rejections, but it is something we're working on including soon. This may clear up some of your errors.

    Well rest assured that I will never again submit anything to the Code White US posts as you say you cannot control who is posting under that name. I have been at 100% since I began working with MTurk specifically because I do use a word processing program set to the strictest professional levels for checking grammar and spelling. I check my work through two separate plagiarism checkers to make certain I have not inadvertently phrased something in a way, which is common enough to set off a plagiarism checker. I have submitted hundreds of articles and surveys with no problem whatsoever, until the one article I turned in this week in response to a Code White US post which was marked as rejected even though I turned in a quality report with the exact work count requested. I can assure you that I am finishing out the article to make it larger and I will be posting it online. I will also be checking to make sure it is not plagiarized in the future by anyone, which if you are correct and it is not your group rejecting and then using the rejected HITs you have no problem. If it is, and my article is used in whole or in part, I will seek legal action against whoever plagiarizes my work.

    I have written for Code White and been accepted and paid. I haven't written very much, but every now and then if I see a topic I like, I'll take the chance. So far so good.
