No matter how many times I try to update my "Mailing Address" field on my careers.SO profile to my address in "York", complete with my postcode (in York!), upon pressing save it automagically updates to "London Borough of Camden", which is no where close.
The existing bug reports say that these mistakes are down to Yahoo! returning the wrong results, however, when I query Yahoo! directly, I get York back as the first result, and Camden is no-where in sight.
You are altering my input silently, without asking me to. Here's what Amazon does, and it's ohhhhh-so-better and less intrusive:
This field is my mailing address; should you even be attempting to correct this? Asking Royal Mail to deliver any letters from potential employers to a city other than the one I entered is wrong. I know my address better than you, or Yahoo!, kthx.
Asking a potential employer to send a letter to the wrong city is a mistake on my application, which makes me look an idiot, which is maybe why I'm so incensed over this.
