The problem with their "user input" is that the result they return is
typically the ISP NOC location (in my case 200 miles south of me, about
halfway across the country).
If I "correct" this, then suddenly all my ISP's users appear to be
located in the same town as me. Which is probably more wrong than them
all appearing to be where they've guessed the NOC location to be.
