In Game "Newer Starbucks: Starbuck locations are usually sponsored locations for gyms, but..."
I laughed when this nomination came through, and quickly rejected it. That's not how sponsored locations work, and there is a major game reference in the description. I did not laugh when I got a photo edit to review. I reported this live portal to help chat, ticket # 18609524, and got this response:
So sounds like they did something, right? But no. Portal is still live three days later: https://intel.ingress.com/?pll=35.953237,-78.525187
I understand that removal criteria is not the same as rejection criteria. But it is extremely frustrating to try to be a conscientious reviewer and see stuff like this in game. And the more stuff that should not have been accepted remains in game, the more will be accepted by example.
