Remove Antarctica from the country list

I mean, seriously, who lives in Antarctica? No one. The human population of Antarctica is zero. People on Scratch joke around by pretending they live in Antarctica, but other than that, no one on Scratch truly lives in Antarctica. So, Scratch Team, it'd be reasonable to remove Antarctica from the country list, as no people live there.

No Support, just no. Some people use it to hide where they really live (in case they are scared someone tries to find them) and some researchers actually live there.

Researchers?… I'd doubt they'd use Scratch. And it is possible for some people to hide their location without using Antarctica. On some profiles, it'll say Location not given.

Once you've set your country, you can't change back to Location not given without using inspect element, which many people won't know how to do.

Anyway, no support. Why does it matter if you don't know someone's actual country?

A lot of people don't even have their real country. As for Antarctica, it's a joke. When @MegaApuTurkUltra had his location as North Korea, how many people in North Korea have internet access? None. They had it as a joke. Even my location is AT. I don't live there. No support.

Support. Antarctica is by no means a legitimate country.

Not sure what to think. I remember the last thread spiraled out of control, but probably because of a different reason. anyway, I don't see why it should be removed, just seems kinda pointless to remove a country because it has temporary populations. On the other hand that temporary population most likely doesn't use scratch.

No support. People set their location to Antarctica because they want to keep their identity as secret.

I can set my location to “Location not given” withoit using inspect element anyway

I am kinda on both sides:
1. Some people use it as a trick to not give out their location
2. It's useless, if noone lives there

Everyone is saying it hides your identity, but “Location Not Given” hides it pretty well too! Why have an extra option? It's almost as pointless as these two options: Location Not given + Location Never Given. What would be be the point in those two? Nothing. You only need one. So that proves my point that it's not needed.

I don't think this is a good idea. You never know, there could be researchers using it in Antarctica. I know this might sound ridiculous, but it could be true.

No support as per above. Besides, we have “Meow” on the language list. It's a joke language, not a real language. Why can't we have joke countries as well?
