I see Yuri is guilty of keyword spam as well.

Oh yes, but he's looking for a career keyworder, inter alia:

That'll be as a replacement for the one who thinks that every sports car has a blonde then? :)

Gosh, that's embarrassing for IS.  Incorrect acceptance of vehicles and enough spam to feed a Hawaiian football team.  No wonder contributors are fed up.

I think you can tell he's completely checked out of the game with the dozens of swimsuit images, dogs with leis, people with animal heads, etc.  Probably on a Jamaican beach somewhere :)

So special, he's teflon-coated. The last time I pointed out his spam here, he was defended, indefensively, then the posts were deleted.

That means someone previously wikied it, maybe yesterday, maybe years ago, but it hasn't been seen by a member of the keywords team.
There doesn't seem to be any rush to review wikied files. But even back in the day, it could take well over a year - though some were done very quickly.

Worse still is when no editing is allowed because the status is 'cleared'. That means it was wikied and reviewed, so either the keywords reviewer didn't notice all the problems or, more likely, the perp just stuck the spam back in again.

But seeing as how iS now let all the spam of the day in, it seems like they just don't care any more. Some naive newbie posted on iS earlier in the week, "don't you know that no matter how hard you shake, real cream will always rise to the top?" - clearly s/he had forgotten about homogenisation.

I  can think of other things that float but I'm too polite to mention it. There seems to be a lot of naivety in the microstock world :D

I got a rejection today for keywords. It wasn't the only thing and I admit I inadvertently uploaded it before I was done with it. I  was going to  add an editorial caption and instead it went in as commercial without a model release. The image was of a person using a wind powered skateboard. the hybrid board  has various names but most have the word skateboard in them.  It is after all a homemade skateboard with a hole for a windsurfer sail. I am told I that the word "skateboard" and 'skateboarding" are not relevant. It's a skateboard. With a sail. Its clearly visible what it is. I even explained the names in use in the description. I am dumbfounded. I am going to sleep on this and decide how to proceed.

ETA: Here's the first line of the description "A man rides a sail powered skateboard on the beach. "
