+Spyder Seven the second letter was a bit more pointed (although, again, it's a comedy site), but I think the verge was a bit too cavalier with its word choice. 

Also I edited my previous comment to play devil's advocate. I think there's a good amount of logic to back up the request, as far as using a family name goes.

How is it Netflix's fault that everyone wants to use their website? The problem clearly does not lie in Netflix it lies in Verizon or any other ISP for that matter for not putting money into their infrastructure. Not only that but they still don't comply with the 1996 telecommunications act.

I was puzzled why the three Czech Republic entries are even there, since I couldn't understand what's rude about those three names, but then it finally dawned on me - apparently, the creator of this map considers the word "Horní" offensive, since the most important information the names are "the most offensive" only to English speaking people, not in the given native language, is never mentioned in the article.

But if that's so, he's gonna spend a lot of time adding all the places with "Horní" in its name - there's most likely hundreds of them in the Czech Republic, since "Horní" simply means "Upper" and is therefore very common, it's certainly not limited to those three entries already there - far from it.
