Abuser re-submitting the same wayspot over and over

I want to report this player who has been nominating the same wayspot over and over even when it was already removed and previously reported by other players. EVEN NIANTIC accepted its removal because it doesn't meet the criteria for being on PRP.

Location: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=19.663686,-99.092788&z=17&pll=19.663686,-99.092788

In this first discussion we can see the removal proposal, which goes right because the wayspot is invalid: https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/34067/invalid-wayspot-appeal#latest

In this one we can see the player trying to appeal for a restauration of the wayspot (probably the wayfinder owner of the house or a neighbor?, bc...who else would appeal for it?) and it was clearly rejected by a Niantic: https://community.wayfarer.nianticlabs.com/discussion/32950/portal-removed#latest

How many times will players have to report this wayspot for the player to be punished? Because it's clearly an abuse.

The biggest problem I see about this is that any other player could nominate it again and I really doubt there could be a way to prevent it.

Hopefully a Niantic staff member will take a look at this soon.

Thank you for reading.
