Registration District Error on large scale

Dear Ancestry Website boffins

This is really annoying me.

In Kent, England there is and has been, for a very long time, a registration district which is called and spelt
HOLLINGBOURNE [in olden times HOLLINGBOURN.]

Yet throughout Ancestry someone has changed it to
HILLINGBOURN

Everything I seem to look at on this website now reads Hillingbourn.
It never has been Hillingbourn

Please Please on my bended knees can someone take the trouble to correct All mentions of Hillingbourn back to Hollingbourn or Hollingbourne in all the Birth, Death and Marriage Indexes.

A quick check on Google would have given the correct spelling. There is no Hillingbourn RD in the UK.

Even a check on the advanced worldwide search of Ancestry.com
shows just 2 instances of Hillingbourn in ALL the census of all the counrties in the world.

and yet a whopping 63,699 births, deaths and marriages.

Doesn't that ring alarm bells with anyone?
I look forward to a speedy resolution to this matter.
