Amazon's "Tag Suggestions"
I was curious what happens when you tell Amazon that you want to write a review, so I clicked on the relevant link on my book's Amazon page, and it took me to a screen where I could enter a review (no, I didn't actually enter a review of my own book). Under this, though, it asked if I wanted to "tag" the book. I don't really know what it means to "tag" a book, but I was a little taken aback by the following "tag suggestions" offered by the nice folks at the Amazon corporation (reported here verbatim):
crappy, humorous, foreign relations, murder, suspense, educational, jay wexler, sex, oh john ringo no

Don't know about "oh john ringo no" but it's kinda funny that "Customers who bought this item [your book] also bought"

What company you keep!
