    [] Ha ha, yes this contact Spelio. EVERY search I conduct of 'LONDON', I get this user popping up with multiply irrelevant scanned images of things that have NOTHING to do with London. From what I can see, Internet Archive Book Images appear to be leaching on to Flickr and using it as an encyclopedia, with lengthy descriptions, which flood Flickr's search engine. I mean, I could go to any one of my photos of London now and tag it with thousands of tenuous words that would mean Americans searching for things in American cities would be spammed with my dross photography. :)

    I have seen a lot of Descriptions on photos that are long trip reports or the same text used on a dozen images that seemed to be loaded at the one with the same text that screws up a search, I agree it is annoying. Some people add many irrelevant tags to many images, which seems to just be an attempt to harvest views...

    [] Exactly Spelio. Look I can see IABI provide interesting archive images, so I am not criticising the quality or importance of their uploads, only how they're tagging their images, OR how Flickr's search algorithms are making them pop up irrelevantly. Maybe unfair to be overly critical of IABI, but I am sick of Flickr staff not banning cat-fishers, advertisers and spammers who use endless tags to 'harvest' views of the unnecessary. Hopefully the person/s behind IABI will start to be more deliberating and less spammy with their image descrips. and tags now they've read this? I've reported one other user eight times in the past three months and Flickr have done nothing. This user has: stolen photos from Facebook users, attempted to sell dating/sex equipment, and all of this wouldn't bother me had the not tagged every photo with hundreds of UK towns and cities. :)
