So I pulled out a book from TBR mountain.  Started perusing it and realized it's the 3rd in a series. Look up author's page, then look up other books (there's 5) on PBS.  Order the 1st one, WL the 2nd and 4th, RL the 5th.  Well the 5th one is tagged incorrectly.  I'm kind of wondering who tagged it as a Futuristic  w/o knowing that the book was about Vikings in the 9th century.    I added my own tag of  "not future" and added a couple others.  Now I'm wondering if in addition to all the personal tags there are a bunch of incorrect ones as well.

I've noticed the tags before, but really wish the tags were NOT there.  It is somewhat confusing for me to be looking for a book and have to scroll down to find something I want and look past the tags.

Eventually only the most commonly used tags will show up, so the ones that are either personal individual tags or inaccurate will effectively disappear.
