Default amazon keywords and 2p2

This is kind of a cross post from bbv, but I thought I would bring this to the reds attention:



apparently, two plustwo books are tagged with the same keywords as treating gambling problems?? This can't be good for business, especially with the biggest bookseller in the world. Maybe Chuck or one of the publishing guys can have a word with amazon so they don't send people like this emails relating 'problem gambling' to 2p2?

I think amazon uses specific code words to determine similarities between books, so once you express interest in a book on 2p2, they probably code it with 'gambling+poker+whatever' which categorizes it with problem gambling books.
