Default What's in a name?

Right, it took me so long to register with this forum, I've found out the answer to my original question through other means.

In the meantime, are there any drawbacks to living in a place which is a name for an object?

In Bath, when I'm in a chatroom I'm in danger of being kicked out when I say I'm in Bath, because I usally spell it which the capital because I think it's pretious enough already around "here". Then reponders think I'm in the bath, with all that implies.

Someone who emigrated here (from Dublin) told me I should never say that I'm going outside to shift my car.

Someone else said when in the 'States, you should never say you're nipping outside to suck on a fag. In NYC, you could get beaten-up for being homosexual; in LA for being a smoker.
