    Here's the thing: there is no right answer here. And, I think me advocating one way or another is probably unfair as it'll influence the actual results.

    Its... so complicated.

    Requesters should be qualling everything in their own best interest --- not even considering the wastefulness/negative impact to the workers not qualling things invites workers to lie and essentially destroy the study. Throwing "FOR FEMALES ONLY" in the HIT title will get them a bunch of "females" lol.

    Is there an argument to be made that qualling everything isn't feasible/practical? Sure. Maybe. Kinda. No not really because 2 yrs later they come back and blast MTurk for their lazy methods. But either way that's not my circus/monkeys to figure out.

    If workers don't want their time wasted, return reviews (RR) are going to be a good way to impact that because it actually gives me data I can send to requesters and say "look at this, stop doing it, its bad for you & us" at the very least. On the better end, we can build things to help cut it down. TurkPrime does a good job of it already, tbf, but they're not all-encompassing and certainly don't really care about our end of the equation much.

    RR are very fluid. They don't really have long term negative impacts to the Requesters profile, and when they are integrated into the profile it will be a relative thing (ie, this Requester is the worst we know of for wasting workers time on broken hits, or unpaid screeners, or whatever).

    I RR'd a great requester last night as "broken" because the system they used to determine if you've already participated is, IMO, broken.

    Are RR kinda garbage data? Yeah, maybe, a little bit on an individual results basis but from the back end perspective I can tell you they are INSANELY valuable as an aggregate system. They really do give a good insight into who sucks & who doesn't (requesters, not workers). They need a lot of work for sure, but they're honestly a good thing overall as long as workers take them with a grain of salt.

    Just seeing the red alert should never be an auto-return for workers. They 100% require some discretion/interpretation, and they probably do hurt newbies a bit who don't know how to interpret the (something TV needs to improve on, *points @ the Endor warning*) but when I can look at a requester like this: https://turkerview.com/requesters/A1OH6DWZ2TL944-center-for-the-science-of-social-connection

    and see they have an average screening time of almost 4 minutes and have accrued over $1,800 in wasted time for workers just off return reviews then I've got something to work with as far as giving hard data to a problem largely just passed off to us to bear the cost of.

    So yeah, it kinda sucks to neg-rep a requester over something you might not need to but it is at least a contained thing & will get love in the future to help workers navigate it better & better. I think the majority of humans are capable of seeing "FOR FEMALES ONLY" with a note "I was screened out for being a guy" and if they've got the lady bits will know to go ahead & proceed with the survey. If not.. I'm not really sure they're going to make it on MTurk anyway.
