winner, don't feel bad. The same exact thing happened to me. In fact, I was about to post a new thread ranting about how much CS sucks (that's why I'm at the boards today, lol) when I came across your comments. I'm an excellent writer as well (I sold content on Constant-Content 2-3 ago) and submitted my best work for the "assessment". Then on Monday, I was also given the "you don't have the skillset but we have your information on file" email. Then I started reading some threads here from people talking about all the "difficult" computer and techie themed articles they had to write, and here I am, a techie who builds my own computers and owns gadgets and cameras up the wazoo. I know how upsetting it is to have been rejected, but look at this rejection as a chance to do freelancing elsewhere, aside from mturk. Who knows? CS may have just done us a favor by not allowing us to take the test.
