The Scunthorpe problem

I ran across an obscure reference to Scunthorpe problem and had to investigate what this “problem” is.  It turns out Scunthorpe is a town in England, as are the following towns which share the same problem: Penistone, Lightwater.

No idea? Perhaps this interview question will make it clear: Design a simple system that can determine if a user name is obscene.
