Turns out I was right in my guess too, this was on the TV news in the UK: Some psuedo-incest porn got into the children's section due to the keyword "daddy". Again, way to go guys - when the big boys start a backlash like this, everyone in the industry is going to feel the hurt.

Frankly, that should also protect their site from seeing the temper tantrums from bba's that have goodreads such problems.

well, that makes me feel better about my personal decision to only review self-pubbed authors if they are recommended to me or if I already know them. I mean, if WH Smith is doing it.

It's a shame that some selfish self-pubbed authors have now spoiled things for all self-pubbed authors.

Selfish whiny self-pubbed authors are behind what's happening on GRs, too.

This is really quite interesting. I wonder what they wold have done had , say, Fifty Shades of Grey, or something similar found its way into the kiddie section. Do you suppose they would have banished all mainstream published books, or at least all Random House books?
