Conflating Crowdsourcing Sources

There is a study that asked crowdsourced workers to rate the violence of Legos (and I won’t get in to my personal viewpoint on this research) and used workers from Crowdflower.

Their rationale for using Crowdflower: they used MTurk rationale to rationalize using Crowdflower. Which makes no sense. And seems kind of lazy.
