In 1996, residents in the British town of Scunthorpe were initially banned from registering with internet service provider AOL because the town's name contained an obscenity.
This became known as the Scunthorpe problem.
Elsewhere in England, residents of the South Yorkshire town of Penistone and Lightwater in Surrey had the same trouble.
