Horribly inappropriate keyword suggestions

A friend tried adding a "directed-by-woman" keyword and was given "defecating-on-woman" and "killed-by-spikes" as suggestions. If a human staffer did that, you'd fire them.

Getting more specific about the problem - it appears that:
  1. The keyword suggestion engine does no semantic analysis of keywords for suggestion purposes
  2. All keywords are considered neutral; there is no concept of a sensitive or offensive keyword (or if there is, the suggestion engine doesn't know about it)
  3. The community has plenty of knowlege of the appropriate keywords for particular topics (such as "f-rated" and "title-directed-by-female") but none of that knowledge is being implemented in the suggestion engine

My apologies if this is old news to everyone, but I'm staggered by how terrible this feature is.

Thanks for highlighting the problem.  The appropriate team have been alerted (and this is indeed the result of a poor automated search).
