somebody entered Normandy in profile, there was no language entered in that box, and the actual country (France) was omitted, should probably put a caveat on languages. Name previously entered was Eure, which is NOT a misspelling, just a modern department in France.

Please add "False Error" option. "Roumania" is an accepted archaic spelling for the country of Romania (See Simand-1, Siegler-31).
