Yeah people are posting it all over my facebook feed too. It actually angers me a little that so many people, who I know personally, cannot read an article properly.
Anyone who has actually watched the show knows that the actual location will never be revealed. It's meant to be Anytown, USA. Just watch the movie, where Ned is pointing to several geographical locations that aren't even near each other in real life. It's like the briefcase in Pulp Fiction: we don't know what's in it, we never will, and we don't truly want to know, either.
