Goodreads and the Steampunk Deletions!

Has somebody been fixing the list of steampunk novels on Goodreads to flatter certain authors and remove others?

I notice that all Stephen Hunt's Jackelian novels are absent from the list, and given that it was the 100,000+ sales of Court of the Air that re-booted the steampunk genre in 2007 from being an obscure corner of SF into a thriving sub-culture, I suspect there has been some, shall we say, 'interesting choices' made in producing the list.
