Why can't I post appeals via Support Chat anymore?
I think since the introduction of new abuse form that support chat is less useful (or maybe worse) now for reporting Wayspots or appealing rejected invalid Wayspot reports.

Back to my rants, personally I would prefer to post my appeals through support chat for speed and safety. So, why would Niantic prefer us to post appeals into this forum and not via support chat? Didn't they even realize forum appeals tend to be slow (or sometimes they just forgot to respond appeals), not to mention that sometimes commotions would happen in forum appeals section when several users disagreed to the appeals or the posters themshelves?
