@j0k Sorry, but wikipedia is not always right :) And I posted link where you can read official statement. So this is clearly a bug. –  Marjan Krekoten' Oct 15 '12 at 16:28

We also spell Deutschland "Germany". Where do we stop trying to be pedantic and just try to get the message across? Every English speaker who's heard of Kiev has seen it spelled that way. –  cHao Oct 15 '12 at 16:43

As someone who is sick and tired of seeing Beijing called Peking and other incorrect romanizations, (especially true in some languages), I can relate. –  NullUserException อ_อ Oct 15 '12 at 17:15

We are somewhat at the mercy of out geocoding provider, which is Yahoo. Here is the query. I’ve asked them to update it in their forums. Will follow up when there is news. –  Matt Sherman Oct 15 '12 at 17:29

@NullUserExceptionอ_อ of course Peking is wrong, it should be Pekking - in the name of Pekka! –  gnat Oct 15 '12 at 17:33

Yahoo appears to have responded, and the query looks good.

Unfortunately, we don't have many jobs listed there! What employers in Ukraine should our salespeople be calling? :)
