Calibre is setting the pubdate to january every time

Each time I add a book, I only have one source checked for metadata download (goodreads). I download the metadata but it says it found an earlier date and changes it to January of the year.

Title : Doctor Who: I Am a Dalek
Author(s) : Gareth Roberts
Publisher : BBC Books
Tags : Science Fiction, Fantasy
Rating : 3.34
Published : 2006-08-02T00:00:00+00:00

Comments : <p>Equipped with space suits, golf clubs and a flag, the Doctor and Rose are planning to live it up, Apollo mission-style, on the Moon. But the TARDIS has other plans, landing them instead in a village on the south coast of England; a picture-postcard sort of place where nothing much happens. Until now... An archaeological dig has turned up a Roman mosaic, circa 70 A.D., depicting mythical scenes, grapes - and a Dalek. A few days later a young woman, rushing for work, is knocked over and killed by a bus, then comes back to life. It's not long before all hell breaks loose, and the Doctor and Rose must use all their courage and cunning against an alien enemy - and a not-quite-alien accomplice - who are intent on destroying humanity.</p>

You cannot, that is the date returned by the xisbn service (which returns only years)

Could I just block the xisbn in a hosts file as a work around? What is the advantage of having it use xisbn every time? What's doing the xisbn query is it the goodreads plugin or calibre? Could I disable it in a script or is it hardcoded?
