@evaristoc haha; probably I was too lazy to read carefully. Quite correct. However strawberries tend to rotten at the invisible bottom where the others are squeezed. That said is the system really cheaper over time? And are the baskets sold that have only one rotten strawberry? This also adds to the cost of business as the strawberries have to be purchased before selling. Anyway my point was that it scaled not that easily as I assumed that Amazon would not only sell strawberries. That's like going to the electronic shop and buy your strawberries there. No associative good combination. I am heavily biased (mea culpa) I don't like Amazon.

@mesmoiron not 100% effective, but it is not the case of the person checking the samples neither (the employees don't check EVERY item: only a sample). And it would be double checked BUT it could have a much better evaluation of a bigger sample in less time.

Yes, you are correct: strawberries tend to rotten at the invisible bottom where the others are squeezed. :) Uagh! I don't eat strawberries that much, to be honest...

Anyway my point was that it scaled not that easily as I assumed that Amazon would not only sell strawberries.

Not only Amazon would apply something like that: be ready for more companies following that trend. Remember: the most expected step in the near future is automation. Although it could NOT happen, of course... or at least not that soon...

I think the QA project is still under evaluation at Amazon, not fully implemented.

I'm finally tackling regex (messing with all those symbols). But I have this file with Dutch stop sentences, utterances that can be filtered out in social media; however there are various ways to misspell the words or have variations. Like geweldig!, geweldig, ge-WEL-dig. Any suggestions how that might be tackled? Maybe stemming. I suddenly realized that social media/sms style text are quite messy at a different level. Even slang might not be written universally.If someone says w8t than it should not be missed. I am compiling some of these files from different sources. Google seems to guess my misspelling almost always correctly.

Always ahead of myself the book 'The Bastards Book of Regular Expressions' just gave a hint how to deal with those variations. :smile:
