    I felt the same way about how bots would work. I don't think they're bots. I think it's more of scamming that some people are doing or don't understand it enough to do it right.

    Yep they probably had a couple people spam/miss AC's on their surveys, and that's their way of addressing it. Weird, though, I do wonder if they REALLY do think it's bots lol, and not just people spamming

    them darn survey spamming bots taking all me surveys

    Yeah and it's not the first time that's been said in fact there was a big "bot" scare probably a few years ago and if you just think about it logically it's not really possible. I think at best you might be able to make a script that autofills a good portion of the survey but again if your smart enough to do that as well as taking the time to perfect some kind of script or program to help you basically steal money from researchers then you could probably figure out better ways to make money using those skills especially if you are already willing to be that conniving. But yeah no way is it a HUGE problem. I can't even imagine it being like over 2% of surveys which I'd be remarkably surprised if it was even that high.

    riiight?! and didn't it have a masters qual? they took all kinda precautions against those "bots" :p
    and I really don't know much about developing scripts/bots, but considering the surveys are hosted on several platforms, the bots would have to be smart enough to detect that/the different forms' coding? unless they're making a different bot for each survey lmfao. but how would the bots also detect the different AC's in different surveys? so the person probably gets half of her/his rejected. The payoff does seem not worth it. To spend that much effort/time for "50 cents" and a 49% approval rating. my tiny brain just can't figure out how designing bots for mturk surveys would work out

    Did the opposite lol need a break from typing and cars so hitting none of the above for 95% of the geohives is the way to go in my opinion.
