Would it not be easier to review the validity of a POI if a wayfarer was able to submit a main and additional photo (via Ingress or PoGo) of where the wayspot was to prove that it no longer exists at the location?
Then when reviewers get to review the submission the supporting photos are listed next to the original POI picture for easy comparison.

Or even supporting text. How about both?
Both sounds good!
At the moment the report invalid POI is totally useless for all but one or two reasons which get dealt with while everything else gets rejected without any actual real look at it.
In case you weren't aware, the reports you make in-game are reviewed by Niantic themselves rather than by Wayfarer reviewers. But I do agree that the ability to add supporting photos/text with the report would be useful.
Im aware Niantic deal with those requests themselves but my comment stands as they don't seem to even check gmaps to validate going by previous reports.
They only seem to take action on certain reasons suck as school/private property if memory serves correctly. Their extremely high rejection rate was posted here recently and it was shocking
the support photo for portal report need to be added.
less time lost for us on appeal and nia on reviewing
Agreed; I've submitted "invalid portal" updates where the entire object was no longer present, but this was rejected and the portal remained. A photo would have easily proven the point.
