[bksvol-discuss] Re: overly sensative adult content ratings?

Some of us believe the list you mention below must be related to the algorithem which lists authors with multipart names as

maurier, daphe du.
passos, john dos.
and so forth.

Thanks all for sending in these titles. We've discovered it must be admitted, to our amusement that the list of "bad words" that the system has been using to flag adult content titles is overly extensive and as a result has been flagging books that are entirely "innocent" (smile). This list predates my arrival here and I don't know who or how it was put together but am glad to inform you that we have a team looking at the list now to shrink it down. Also -- Engineering has made the fix to allow volunteers to be able to change the rating on a book so that should be taken care of with the next release slated for the first week of May.

All good things,

Revelation by Andrews was flagged that way and I was unable to change it. This is in my comments.

Amber and others,

Engineering is trying to figure out why the adult content flag is mistakenly being applied to some books. It would help if they had particular instances of that happening to look into. If any of you have had an adult content flag attached to a book you either submitted or proofread, please send in the title and I will forward it on to engineering.

Thanks!
Pavi

I have submitted four books in the last few days, all of which received an adult rating by the automatic adult thingy. None of these books are adult in the least. Furthermore, when I do get an adult rating, it's because books have three or fewer adult words. What gives? And why can submitters not change that setting?
