Is there a way to check who many profiles have a death location of Y, Somme, Picardie, France

I have several profiles that show as death location of (Y, Somme, Picardie, France). I googled this location and first topic that showed is that this is a error phenomenon related to when people type Y for yes in the death field and Y, Somme, Picardie, France is the first item in the fields drop down menu and gets added to the field accidently. I have been removing all death location "Y, Somme, Picardie, France" for my American Profiles as I believe this to be a bogus entry. "Y" is a very, very, small village in France with a population of under 85, possible many profiles may be in error.

Sorry I now see that this has already been discussed.
Question is, how should the people of Y capitalize on their fame?

I think they should start a euthanasia clinic, for people who want to confound future genealogists by actually dying at Y, which nobody will ever believe.
And if they were born in Reusel-de Mierden, Noord-Brabant, Netherlands as well, they simply never existed.

From the Project Database Error Report latest report 2016-06-12 its 4936 profiles if they are all open and you can change them then it takes about 13 hours to correct them ;-)

632 Y death location 4936 55     157 4639 85
