Are there differences between "black comedy" and "dark comedy?" (subgenre keyword questions)

Just five days ago, IMDb revised its guidelines for keywords to make a few changes. One of the changes involves subgenre keywords. The phrase "accepted values" for subgenre keywords was changed to "suggested values." I support this change 100% -- in fact I have been recommending exactly that chan

Total illogic in category-subgenre-genre-keyword connection

How is it possible for a title to have an IMDb "subgenre" as a "keyword" and not also have the "genre" attached to that "subgenre-keyword" as a "genre" for that same title? For instance, IF a title has the "satire-comedy" subgenre as a "keyword," should that same title not also have "Comedy" as

These highly subjective (best, worst, new) keywords should be blocked

Dear @Michelle, Here are some highly subjective release-related keywords that should be blocked as too subjective. I have already manually edited and deleted some of these, but I believe it would be good to permanently block them so they don't reappear. best (16 titles) best-of-the-best
