Military Bases seem to be getting through wayfarer, is there a process to flag these locations?

Dear @NianticCasey-ING and the wayfarer community,

I appreciate that it is not possible to know all the guidance and nomination acceptance criteria for all locations but a rule that has been clarified on numerous occasions is Military bases. pre-OPR /wayfarer POIs are grandfathered in and will not be removed, but all new nominations should be 1* rejected. This doesn't seem to be happening round here.

In Suffolk England near where I live there are 2 USAF bases that require military authorisation to access the sites. The number of POIs was ~15 but this has been increased to more than 50 with the efforts of the local gaming communities. Reviewers fail time and again to spot that they are looking at military bases. The bases have been reported lots of times to NIA but there is never any response and the POIs continue to be submitted and get accepted.

@NianticCasey-ING these sites are clearly marked on many official mapping resources, are niantic actively looking to implement an automatic solution to block submissions in these locations and are the non-grandfathered POIs eligible for removal? Thanks for your time,0.540706&z=17&pll=52.393402,0.540706,0.470462&z=17&pll=52.36991,0.470462
