What to do if Wayspot is renamed back right after Niantic fixed it as a result of appeal?

After several of my appeals were recognized by Niantic who as a result has fixed the Wayspots’ names they were renamed right back either to the name from before Niantic’s intervention or to something different but even worse than before.
What can be done in situations like these? Is it necessary to repeat the whole process again?
I can give specific examples here, I have been commenting on corresponding threads but it looks like when Niantic tag is given to them nobody pays attention anymore
Here are some examples
I could provide more examples of wayspots renamed after an appeal but new names are not totally bad so it's not worth it. Names restored by Niantic as a result of appeal were better than new, current names so "communinity" hasn't improved them at all, but there are too many such renames in Gdańsk, Poland to appeal about all of them.
It is funny that one person is able to destroy the names of Wayspots under the cover that these are changes translated into the language of the Kashubian minority. MINORITY DOES NOT PLAY! No one is happy with these changes. This is one troll, the same as xezar66 / 66fbi. He don't care about quality just making the game miserable for others. And Niantic, through the people in charge, allows it. Shame.
Why is this still being practiced?
Probably soon the only kashub will wake up and start crying about discrimination. Give yourself a break.
Instead of making unsubstantiated accusations against the local community, we should focus on providing the highest quality translations so that all players can fully enjoy the ability to enter Wayspot names in various languages, including Kashubian. At the same time, you should respect and appreciate the cultural and linguistic diversity of our gaming community, which is one of the most important assets of the game
None of the players are happy with these changes. In the community, you are alone. And you persist in writing something about the non-existent Kashubian community in Niantic games.
In fact, I think you're the only one
@Niantic, Can someone please answer the question?
Shouldn't approved appeal to Niantic be an ultimate instance for name change requests? How is it possible that names restored by Niantic are changed back to what Niantic, by approving the appeal, has confirmed is not correct?
