Blogger importer says "blogspot" when it should say "Blog*Spot".

This is probably over-pedantic, but shouldn't the Blogger importer say "Blog*Spot" to be politically correct?

  • wp-admin/import/blogger.php

    old new  
    1212                $auth_url = "";
    1313                $title = __('Import Blogger');
    1414                $welcome = __('Howdy! This importer allows you to import posts and comments from your Blogger account into your WordPress blog.');
    15                 $prereqs = __('To use this importer, you must have a Google account, an upgraded (New, was Beta) blog, and it must be on blogspot or a custom domain (not FTP).');

Shouldn't it just be changed to "Blogger"? ->

I disagree. Blog*Spot and Blogger aren't synonymous. You can be using Blogger while not using Blog*Spot. Google uses "Blog*Spot" a fair bit (as far as I can remember).

About a year ago when I researched a related issue #3490, I found that Blog*Spot was seldom used in their literature any more. In considering this issue here, I would think it might be best to say "it must be hosted on", because that is the most explicit instruction.
