Google Maps indentify "Los Pinos; Official Home of Corruption"

Posted by DD, partially republished from SDPnoticias and  Mexico News Daily


fGoogle Maps edits: the Chamber of Deputies, left, and Los Pinos.
 Last  weekend, the name of the official residence of President Enrique Peña Nieto as it appeared on Google Maps was changed from Residencia Oficial de Los Pinos to Residencia Oficial de la corrupción, or Official Residence of Corruption.

That name change was followed by another in a similar vein soon after.   The name of the lower house of Congress, officially the Cámara de Diputados, or Chamber of Deputies, became Cámara de Ratas, or Chamber of Thieves, while the Palacio Legislativo, or Legislative Palace, became Palacio de la Ratería, which translates into Palace of Thievery or Palace of Dishonesty.

By Tuesday those maps showed no identification at all. 

Google said the name change of the President’s home and the Congress was not a hack but was initiated by a user. Making changes to Google Maps is a simple matter of submitting a suggestion for an edit but such suggestions have usually been subject to review.

While it appears that someone was trying to have a little fun, it was probably not funny to the President and the Congress.

    1. Google read my mind, almost, I had a plan to call El Zocalo
      "La Plaza de los Asesinos", then you cross La Calle de los de los Rateros to get into the Nazional Palace,
      --and "the 'heroic military college" that has become "la escuela de los lambegüevos"... let's start something there
