and truth be told mturk never came back from the big bot attack of 2018
https://www.wired.com/story/amazon-mechanical-turk-bot-panic/
In 2018 I was aware of MTurk but I was not registered, at that time I was programming industrial PCs and PLCs (programmable logic controllers) in automation companies and I was busy. But I think Amazon's security levels have improved a lot, a bot or botnet attack isn't that easy. Even if everything is vulnerable on the internet. Maybe other applicants are needed and not just from the USA, I hope more applicants from Europe. I think...

maybe they've improved. maybe they haven't. however, many requesters have not given their trust back and are not bringing new ones with them as before. trust, not improvements is what it's about.
