Do Niantic Appeal Reviewers Read?

Another case of what I feel is a bad review from the appeals people.

The text I entered into the appeals box section: - Location is 53.766761845887586, -1.3677274980914582 for anyone who wants to be nosey.

"Explain why this business is important" - I wasn't submitting the snooker supplies shop, pretty generic business and uninteresting to me, I was submitting the building as a historical POI, I thought I explained it quite well with as much detail as I could find online.

    I have to agree with you. To me it seems like many reviewers are just rejecting poke stops out of spite.

    Other rejection criteria. That is some seriously maddening stuff.

    I have a Lake near me that is also an RV park. I've been adding stops all summer long. There seems to be no reason for them to reject the few that have been rejected and accept all the others.

    Unless the ones that were approved slipped in by mistake, or the ones that were approved more obviously met the eligibility criteria than the ones rejected. There can definitely be legitimate reasons.

    They don't read. They just don't.

    I got a negative appeal, stating the suggested pokestop does not exist (it does, I look at it every day), and that the photo was 3rd party (I took the photo with my own phone). Why and how is it possible for the appeal-system to conclude so wrongly? And should I just try to submit it again, or is there anything else to do?

    I was refused a nomitation because "the sign is remporary". They just refuse for the fun of it, for the most stupid reasons. The sign in question is a city sign, made of metal, and it's been in place for at least 15 years.

    I was also refused park benches because " it's only nature with no human made features". I never knew benches grew in the wild all by themselves.

    Some reviewers get drunk on power and refuse nominations for the strangest of reasons.
