Solved

The keyword "movie-flop" still exists.

https://www.imdb.com/search/keyword/?keywords=movie-flop

Can we just ban this permanently? Thank you.

The keywords "blockbuster" and "movie-flop"

Since these two IMDb keywords are vague-sounding 
- as a film's box office cannot always be conclusively proved
- I propose that they both be deleted.

@ACT_1​ What is confusing about that? Start thinking straight. If box-office-bomb has been banned, movie-flop should be as well.

I agree that movie-flop should be removed and banned. I'd also like to see a preemptive ban on box-office-flop and flop.

IMDb should, however, allow for box-office-flops-as-subject and box-office-flop-as-subject, which would be useful for podcasts and documentaries.

Hi hurdy_gurdy_man -

The "movie-flop" keywords you reported have now been removed from the site and blocked.

Cheers!

Thanks @ACT_1​ for the updates.  When there are hundreds of keywords it can take time to process through the system.

Cheers!
