Batches were done on useless terms like Unplaced Synonyms, etc. Feel free to remove any regular CV terms that have been added that you feel are not appropriate to your file(s).

/I am not easily angered and this far I have been happy that you at least have kept us infomed of the developments, but now  I am really upset.

In the beginning of Dec. I noticed the oddity of the keywording of many of my best (Agency files). I and many with me asked what to do and were told the "sit tight", it would be fixed. End of December when it still seemed the fix was far away I once more asked should I remove the keywords myself and was told "Leave the keywords for now".

So I kept my patience and waited. Now the "fix" is finished removing "useless terms" and still the keywording is a mess and NOW I am told I have to go in to do the fix myself!

Can you please tell me why the keywords Image techique and Image Type is useful to a buyer!

And how come slaughtering a goat is suddenly a Natural Phenomenon

And do you think a buyer searching for Household Equipment, Kitchen Utensil or Dishware would be happy to find my masai image even though there is a pot in the image.

And after all I have a limited number of Agency files so it will be a reasonable work to go though them manually even if I could use that time for better things, can't imagine what it would be like if I had many more.
