If this is such a great idea, why is DT the only one doing it?

Because DT is the best.
Explanation : I needed an image of a loving teen couple for a youth magazine a few months ago. On page one I got an image of an isolated plastic duck in a bath tub. I flagged it like hell.
#2 : looking for a girl in dungarees, I got an image of an aircraft carrier. This guy had the decency to reply. He said that he was an ex-marine and the dudes there on those ships were wearing dungarees during his time. Right.

(Check: both images are gone now in those searches)

Just today I got an image flagged because of a typo and I was  grateful as it was quite an important keyword that was missing from the image.

Do you keyword your images for each site individually or have you been able to change the word at other sites?
I think SS runs a spell check on descriptions and keywords?
Of course, iS edits keywords more stringently than most. 
Doesn't Fotolia have a spell check also?

Good that someone was helpful enough to let you know about a misspelling.

I meant to write happy and actually wrote nappy which is a word in English(possibly not in america) so it wouldn't have been caught by the spellcheck.

Checking Keywords Is a reviewers job. All of us could do better Im sure But very few if any reviewers take the time to look as they should. They get paid by how many they do, I've always said reviewing is one of the most Important Jobs at any site and until the day comes when a site understands this and pays a fair wage for proper, Educated review teams that First of all know what there looking at and take the time to study the details ie;Keywords This will go on and on.

I reviewed for 3+ years and honestly I didn't see to many out of a few 100 thousand that didn't have some goofy words.

I've got 2 flags, one was right, one was wrong. I find it annoying, as said before this should be a reviewer's job, who, I think, should be a native English speaker.
For me DT is far from being the best. Ultimately, an agency success is about money. I earn in one day at SS as much as I earn /month at DT and twice more at 123RF... Of all, I like DT the least. Much cry and little wool.

@rinderart, why did you quit?
