    I am on a trip outside the US and I always get the message "You are not qualified to take this HIT (Code # 14).
    Do NOT Continue with this HIT. If you accepted it, Return it. "
    What is that supposed to mean ?

    They only want US workers and your IP shows outside of the US.

    Even the hits I'm invited to by email can not get them! It does not seem fair.

    That might be but it doesn't apply to the majority of hits on the platform that only want people from within the USA.

    the ugly cat is right. It is a message/warning from mturk which states that your IP is out of United States.

    You are not blocked but I can say that if you try to use VPN to change your IP, you will probably be blocked, maybe not in the near future, but soon from mturk.
