Citysearch and badly written content filtering

I use Citysearch to look for new and interesting places to eat and go out. It won’t let me enter my location ‘Draper’ – it complains about ‘Inappropriate Content’: Here’s my location: Here’s the complaint: Looking at the content all I can assume is that ‘Draper’ contains ‘rape’ – and that’s bad.
