    Default Mechanical turk account suspended

    This is what I got from amazon:

    Greetings from Mechanical Turk.

    We have suspended your Mechanical Turk Requester account affiliated with xxx.xxx@googlemail.com, effective immediately.

    Despite our previous e-mail warning, you continued to post Human Intelligence Tasks that violated the terms of our HIT listing policy. All of your HITs have been removed from our web site, regardless of whether they had been answered.

    We regret that we can no longer do business with you.


    Thank you for participating in Mechanical Turk as a Requester.

    Please let us know if this e-mail resolved your question:

    If yes, click here: ....

    Damn. How can I post HITs in a way that they do not get flagged? I let people click on my cpa-offers with redirection to the actual cpa-offer, but still, some people think, they have to flag me. How do you make people happy and click on your cpa-offers?

    PM me / find me on AIM I have been using mechanical turk for a while to chill out conversion rates on redirected CPA offers, so far, no issues. Hit me up and we'll figure out whats going on.

    I wonder if you could cloak the cpa-offers somehow, through obscurity. If it's an external HIT the worker doesn't see that URL, so that may be an interesting basis for a hack. I wonder if you could embed the cpa-offers on your own site, as a [oh what's it called when you embed one site inside of another, can't remember the word]. And instead of showing the cpa-offer I think maybe you could overlay an image? So that what the Mechanical Turk worker sees is a benign operation while what is really going on is they're clicking on your cpa stuff.

    I'm not sure if this is possible. But it does seem to be the case that, to do anything related to black hat on Mechanical Turk you have to...lie to the worker and present them with a totally obfuscated view of what they're doing.

    This is actually in principle a good idea giving the worker the impression to do something legit - by using e.g. iframing. But then I can as far as I know no longer fake the referer and CPA companies would not like that (or even worse: referer from mechanical turk ). Well, no idea, maybe there are some clever means to combine the satisfaction of the cpa-company with the willingness of the worker.
