So how does this work.
When I'm on this page, it says the keyword 'toxic femininity' has 13 titles attached to it:
https://www.imdb.com/find?q=toxic+femininity&ref_=nv_sr_sm
then when u click on it, it only has 11..
From what I know, this title has the keyword too, but it doesn't show on its page:
https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3686998/keywords?ref_=tt_stry_kw
set them alphabetical, you can't see it, but when you add the keyword, it says it's already there.
This title is also not shown in the first link..
Weird huh?

This happens with many keywords. A keyword can be completely eliminated, but enter an eliminated keyword as a search for a list of titles with that keyword, and a list of titles will still appear. However, when one goes to those titles, and checks their keywords, that same keyword IS NOT listed.

It's as if there's a "stutter" or a "hesitation" or a "retention" of titles that previously had the deleted keyword.

Curiously, keywords can also be deleted and THEN reappear, sometimes within hours.

Something (or someone) is not working correctly.

When you Correct/Delete the keyword list, it's there:

But when just viewing the list, searching for "tox" returns no results.

I would guess it is a banned keyword so the system somewhat recognizes it but won't display it.

Banned keyword? Excuse me?
Then the keyword 'Toxic masculinity' would be banned as well, which isn't the case.
Also, than I would assume the other titles wouldn't have the first keyword either but they show up just fine there.

Hi M J,

Thanks for flagging. There's no reason for these counts to be different, and so I have flagged this issue with our tech team to investigate further. We will respond here once here have an update. 

Many thanks

Jay
