It seems people take exception to it being called the LOTR volcano...

It's where some of the filming was shot, but not all the shots were of Ruapehu.

This reminds me of a special I watched where they discussed a Yellowstone eruption and talked about evacuating the park. Every time they talked about getting the campers out of the park, I mentally added "except for the idiots who are sneaking back in behind them."

A few of the people killed by St. Helens were killed because they snuck into the danger zone.
