If someone followed the instructions given here:
their captions would certainly be rejected on iStock.
Useful link......However Shutterstock don't apply their own rules.......I changed my date style in line with I Stock and now get accepted on both?!

They have no idea which cities are in the US and which are not, so nothing would surprise me.

IIRC, Getty has long had a no individual image deactivation policy.

Because Getty is for adults who submit an image without the intention of removing them on some emotional whim because of the illusion on this forum that everyone else is removing their images.

Who has the time to micro manage single images?

From time to time, 'the process' (iStock) changes colours when a file has arrived on the database. In the past, I've just deactivated and reuploaded.
I presume they'll deactivate in such circumstances, but it's so much more hassle to have to contact them and wait, sometimes weeks, for a reply. Also costs them more in support time, though probably these requests, even when it's their fault, won't be prioritised.
