I'm thinking we should use the other spelling for the main title of this trope. Am I the only one who thought that "Shamgri La" meant a "Shangri La" that was later subverted and shown to be a sham?

I also thought that and, after reading the description, don't understand why it's titled as it is.

Thirded. This trope name makes absolutely no sense unless this trope is about a false Shangri-La. The "m" version of the trope gets about 14,000 hits, with the top ones being to multiple copies of the same text; the "n" version gets 56,000,000.

Fourthed. I was expecting the "sham" to have more meaning too.
