"null" in description debate.

I've come across a few waypoint submits where the submitter put the word "null" in the description. The rest of the submit checks out ( good photo, title accurate, location accurate).

Question: In the case of "null" in description how should it be rated? Does it matter? Any thoughts?

Thanks for your answers.

    The official wording is that “Description is not required” but I think that’s only due to there being some ancient Ingress nominations still in the queue, where you did not need to add in a description.

    However now it is required when nominating, so I would probably mark 1* for that section as it doesn’t help to explain what the Wayspot is.

    If it is an older Ingress nomination, there will be no supporting photo.

    Maybe they put that to get thru the nomination on-site, intending to edit it from home - then forgot. Maybe they're blessed beyond comprehension, and nominations move quickly there.

    Anyway, "null" isn't obscene, or insulting to a religious or ethnic group, or any of the things I give 1* overall. I'd probably give "Name/Description category 3* for it, if the title is OK.

    Also, I wish reviewing had an option, "Drop this description", like edits do.
