Many spam-entries are gone. But not all. Looking at the first page of best match for "pattern" ... :(

It is becoming a dump yard. You can find some "treasures" in the dump yard but it takes time ... I can't believe how many duplicates people submit too.

Is this designer shutterstock's pet? https://www.shutterstock.com/image-vector/halloween-pumpkin-icon-vector-orange-smiling-496566211?src=CjyDyXvOHgnXoo2SBQnrzw-1-7

Her spam work was in winter collection on front page and shutterstock does not touch her portfolio. I wonder what happen if we would do the same? Why she is untouchable? Is she sex minority or ukrainian?

That last link... I cant believe someone will want to put title like this, should be banned without chance to fix it.

I've counted 5 times chocolate in title and 10 times in keywords.

I asked Shutterstock support, could I do the same. They answered, no. Only few are allowed.  :(

Glad they fixed most of it, but not done yet. Maybe a duplicate limit would be good? I mean how many subtle variations do buyers need? The lightbulb vector group was an example of far too many. Marijuana guy is another. It makes the SS site and search look like trash.
