I wasn’t the only one

Some are uncritical

After having finished my article about Alcercthe – which is a nonsense name, the result of a failed OCR of Alcorcillo – I googled with that quite unique name.

Amazingly, there were many hits. Lots of sites adopted the name without question, for example to display photographs. Others hope to sell property or let out an apartment there, apparently with so little knowledge of the local market that they didn’t even check the name of the village.

Some pay attention

Fortunately, there are also still people who are aware of the world around them, check things and mention it when they aren’t right. I quote a few of those:


I wonder if it is. If I’m ever near it, I’ll go and look.
