There was (is?) a network of bots in Germany rejecting everything earlier this year. This nomination may have been caught in that. You may have to use an appeal, or maybe if you upgrade you'll be able to get outside of the bot area.
Is Niantic aware that this is happening? If so or even if they aren't is there another way to appeal the POI. Maybe similar to Location edit appeals?
Niantic is fully aware of this, yes.
No, they have not provided any option other than one appeal every 30 days.
Here's the discussion about it: https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/29640/2nd-wave-of-massive-rejections-in-germany
Niantic said people affected could appeal to the help chat, but apparently that's not true as all those appeals seem to have been rejected. Niantic may also have taken some behind the scenes actions against the bots, but they haven't shared that. I'm not in Germany, so I don't know if anyone has seen any improvements.
From the comments on this forum, Post Offices in Germany are sometimes a struggle to get accepted, bot problem or not.
