Looks like Media Psychology Lab is rejecting everyone. Even me. :confused: :disapprove: Bad news requester. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!

Seems they just make up an excuse and auto-reject. Period.
Just looked I got one too. Missed attention check. Anyone else?

All I can think is that TO and TV must have been acting up that day, 'cause I would never have done anything for a requester with that chain of bad reviews. This is a known scammer. And I missed that. Of course this isn't actually my fault. It's on the requester. And on Amazon who allows it....everybody didn't miss the AC.

Email the ethics board. It gets a better response. I haven't seen an address for that. Maybe there isn't one.

often, when everyone gets rejected - there is a problem with the way the survey is set up (it automates the rejections).

Almost every time this happens, it gets fixed.

If the researcher is affiliated with a university/college - it HAS to go through the IRB. So, just find out what academic institution they work for - and email it.

From the review sites, it looks like this outfit has a habit of mass rejections. Still, a polite e-mail asking for a more detailed explanation first never hurts. You never know it may actually be an honest mistake. If they don't respond or don't seem willing to work with people by overturning the rejections THEN send the pitchforks and torches after them. :mob::mob::mob:

just made a big bowl of cabbage salad (w/tahini dressing :).

Had to go outside to deal with the compost.

Returned, and the dog was eating it.
