Addition comments Question

So when you add additional comments to an accepted or rejected location when reviewing who reads them, in what ways is it useful or can be useful, and does it affect a location getting accepted or rejected at all?
Example: I see a location with a handful of seemingly fake locations. The location I am reviewing seems to be fake as well. It is not on the map and close to other pokestops not on the map or findable on Google maps.
I reject (abuse) and add a comment that there is possible abuse as location is not findable, and directly next to the location is 2 unfindable poke stops as well
The additional comments are only visible to Niantic. I leave comments mainly when I am rejecting nominations, especially when marking it under the abuse category.
If you see numerous fakes in an area it is probably a good idea to make a dedicated report to bring it to Niantic's attention.
@Hikaru588-ING how do I make a report to niantic directly?
Go to the help chat and use that to report any instances
Be careful when using the abuse button. Apparently some wayfarers were given warnings for using “abuse” when perhaps (no one is really sure because warnings are so vague) they should have used miss matched location or does not meet criteria.
