1. With the changes to MTurk's payment systems I'm recommending people take a moment to consider securing their on-site banking information from userscripts. TVJS has already been updated to explicitly prevent it from accessing sensitive pages, but workers should strongly consider permanently blacklisting scripts from running on pages containing banking information.

    [Guide] Globally Blacklisting Scripts From Running on MTurk's Bank Account Management Pages will show you how.

    Maybe one way to address that would be with performance-tracking, using the "abandonment rate" (with recency): If a worker has a very high "recent abandonment rate", the service won't allow that worker's client software to request-and-wait for more than a couple of HITs at a time. — If the worker has NOT recently abandoned "too many" HITs, their client script can be allowed to request-and-wait for "more than just a couple" of HITs at a time. — (Vague outline of something that could use whatever concrete numbers in practice.)
