Thank you for enabling it again. I had read about the blind tests in 
before but I see some major changes in the graphs, which are a bit hard 
to understand.
1) In "Daily moderation actions (percentage)" there's a huge spike of 
helpful/unhelpful after C (July), did those flags even exist before? Or 
did helpfulness increase after wider usage according to the finding «the 
average page receives higher quality feedback than pages picked for 
their popularity/controversial topic»? (There's no change between 5 and 
10 % though.)
2) "Unique daily articles with feedback moderated" shows a spike and 
then a stabilization, but I don't know what the graphs actually is 
about. For instance, can feedback be moderated per article ("feedback 
semi/full protection" or so) or only per item, etc. Do you know if 
moderation happens on the same articles and if stricter moderation 
increases helpfulness of feedback also on non-moderated articles?
