My beef is that I write bedtime stories. A search of 'bedtime stories' at Amazon will throw up children's bedtime stories and a awful lot of erotica, including s/m (by which time I feel like throwing up).
In a nutshell, I think that customers should have to explicitly enable adult material in their search preferences.
That type of scenario is really embarrassing and unnecessary, i agree. Amazon should have a better search criteria protocol or something. I do feel that a rating system like on movies, TV and comic books would at the very least categorize books so that they are more searchable and filterable. No censorship, but definitely more categorization to help with organizing everything and getting the right book to the right audience.
