Submission + - Why was the Disney app a result for an iTunes search for 'incest'? (forbes.com)

nonprofiteer writes: Until very recently, if you searched the Apple iTunes app store for a series of explicit and sexual words, you got some very unexpected results. A search for "incest" resulted in the Disney app and kids' games. "Masturbation" gave you a bunch of news apps, including a Fox News channel. "Beastiality" led to kids' games involving animals. The Washington Post app showed up in a search for "vagina".

The developers for these apps surely weren't tagging them with these keywords. When Apple was asked about why this was happening, the problem was silently fixed. Any idea why this would happen, Slashdot?
