…as secret as the Colonel’s Secret Recipe (chicken, grease, salt). Will Niantic do anything about this?
The trigger words should not be just sent off to Niantic. It should just be a simple check one it slides into "In Voting" and if the operative agrees that the trigger word should result in a true rejection, it should be rejected outright. If the trigger word, such as a post office in a suburb is used correctly, then it should be released into the general Wayfarer process (unless it goes into Niantic voting anyway).
Yes, because some words in some countries are nasty, but in other countries there is no issue with the same words.
this is not about banned words. this is about words that are allowed by the filter, but might indicate it is for a poi that is not acceptable. what happens when someone uses those words is that their nominations go straight to niantic for review, and they get a decision quickly without having to use an upgrade.
The odd thing about the trigger words is that even when a submission is on hold whilst you edit and perfect your text, if you use one of these words it is taken straight into niantic voting before you even unhold, not even giving you chance to change it.
