Why don't these event locations match?
In this record: https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:CH2R-K3Z I notice the locations don't match.
Event Place Norfolk, Norfolk, Massachusetts, United States
Event Place (Original)Norfolk, 3, Norfolk (Independent City)
The correct place is Norfolk, Norfolk, Virginia.
This is the third or fourth one I've seen in the last week. Another one was a place in Fayette, Kentucky showing up with an event place of Fayette, Pennsylvania.
Is this a database error?
@N Tychonievich another for the "corrected" place name file, please.0

It's an auto-standardization error.
FS really, really needs to just give up and revert ALL of the automatic standardizations that it has applied in the past year or so. Every. Single. One.2
Oh, the BOT did it!🤐2
Yes, the bot went a bit crazy. For example: https://community.familysearch.org/en/discussion/111798/another-instance-of-the-place-name-corrector-run-amok#latest1
@Natalie Trott_1 Thank you for your beautifully complete report of the problem! A URL so I can get to it quickly and a clear description of what is inaccurate. A+ for you!
I will get it to engineering for correction. Won't happen fast, as they unfortunately have a lot of these they are gradually working through.3
