What is the "Place of death looks like cause of death" inconsistency?

The Geni Consistency Checker will report "Place of death looks like cause of death" on any profile whose death location matches a list of known causes of death.  This can happen if a user accidentally enters the cause of death into the incorrect field, or by importing bad data via GEDCOM.  Note that some locations such as Murder Island, Nova Scotia may trigger this inconsistency.  In these cases you should click the "Ignore" link at the bottom-right corner of the inconsistency and then choosing "Mark this correct for all users."

Auto-fix: Click the button labeled "Move <death location> to the cause of death" to remove the death location and save it as the cause of death instead.
