Posting comments - default setting for 'location'

Currently when posting a comment the field for 'location' appears to default to 'United States'. I've seen quite a lot of occasions where people, myself included, forget to change this. What do people think about having the default setting as 'blank' or generic like the 'World Wide Web' or even 'Shutterchance'.

Just a thought...

Bizarrely, location is a tricky one. We've tried 3 different systems, one of which was supposed to be able to pin you down to the city - that one really was inconsistent. The current one we are using is supposed to take your IP address and matches it against a db. However, we think the inconsistencies may arise because the IP is sometimes from a proxy which could be anywhere (though most often from the States). How would you feel if, when you are logged in location is assigned to what you signed up as, and when not signed in it does the freaky IP thingy?

That sounds more appropriate, I would guess that most people stay logged in and don't hop in and out so in most cases Shutterchancers would at least be posted correctly based on their log in. Passers-by are more likely to take note of the boxes anyhow and can correct errors when they see them.

Not that I have anything against Americans!
