We are all constantly learning, and that goes for almost everything in 
life, not just book scanning and validating.
I try keeping ego out of the equation so I don't fret over what a book's 
final rating ends up being.
They generally end up excellent as I tend to indicate, but if a validator 
arbitrarily changes it, so what!  It's one person's opinion which hardly 
is going to matter in the grand scheme of things.
I know I put my best effort into it, and that's all I can do.

And as for rejections, which Lissi asked about, I have had only one in 40 
plus submissions -- and that was because 2 individuals happened to submit 
the the saame book at the same time and the arbitrary choice was to reject 
mine as it got through the queue slower.
I wouldn't submit something I believed not to be of good enough quality 
for the collection, and have stopped scanning several books because of 
Hence, if I got a rejection without input as to why, I'd take that as an 
arbitrary individual decision and after relooking at the book, I'd likely 
just submit it again.
