don't leave the throttle party
He was such a great player
im about to lol the throttling just turned me off, which is hard to do at 3 am
I hope the ash hole who designed throttle is cursed to step on legos for a century.
Those MF hurt!
Is there a legit reason for a requester to throttle other than to make sure as many workers as possible can do the tasks (which isn't relevant for this specific one)?
Requesters have absolutely no control or knowledge of throttling. It's a secret platform feature put in for never clearly defined reasons by some dipshit rolling through the AWS sprint cycle.
I'd bet $ none of the active MTurk employees even know it exists. So fucking stupid.
Oh dang I thought it was something requesters did. All that misdirected anger... I should direct it at you!
Mturk has employees? I thought it was just spun off and left to flounder or die.
All of their current employees are actually really good. But it's always the same thing, they're dumped at the bottom of the AWS totem pole and just need to sprint TF out as quickly as possible to move up the AWS ladder.
the throttling is real today....
