MSN HRS: Human Review System?

JoJo posted a thread at our forums named MSN "judging" websites manually? and at DigitalPoint forums named in ref logs ? revealing a page at MSN Search named HRS at, which has the logo at the top, shown below.

Does anyone have the password? I am guessing, wild guess, no evidence, that HRS stands for "Human Review System" but I can be totally wrong. I did a search on msn hrs and found only non-english pages, here is one translated.


We know Google has human reviews and so does Yahoo, who doesn't. So one can assume that MSN does as well.
