Hey there, a user of my application (which uses geonames data) found a spam entry in the geonames data. However, I don't have the authorization to remove it, so I'll just post it here. It was noticed because it's the only entry with more than 5k+ pop (which is the lower limit of what my app shows) on Nova Zembla.

Thanks for the great work you do

The spam/meme/joke entry:

Hello, it appears the same user has also left some other spam entries. In the image, the first group in the image seems to be a list of locations in Brazoria County that have been given some odd names, the second group is several attractions in New York City that already have entries and are not really populated places, and the last entry is a meme/spam entry.

There are other settlements, such as one called "Edging and Gooning Settlement", which are located in other countries.

If possible, an audit of jonibigodes' cities and edits would be good.
