I'm not debating there are books with inconsistent / bad metadata. I am saying that if the title and author are inconsistent the rest of the metadata in the book often follows suit. If I am forced to use the filename to fill in metadata I don't want to sift through or use the rest of the book's metadata.

I'll let you, Kovid and DazJWood debate better ways to do things.

That is why I only use GoodReads for downloading tags, check out my link above for more detail.
