Would it be possible for Niantic to provide some clarifications and/or reassurances on the 30-day Wayfarer and game bans being handed out? Initially it was speculated that this would be a tool for cleaning up the abuse ring in The Netherlands. However, it sounds like people across the globe are experiencing game account suspensions due to this. As always, cheaters are unlikely to admit that they were cheating, and everyone thinks their nominations are quality, but many folks seem like they might deserve the benefit of the doubt.

Earlier today, well-known YouTuber ZyoniK made an anti-Wayfarer video raising concerns about this, and I had a nomination rejected via the new automated system. This caused me to question: If a person gets a threshold of nominations rejected via the automated system, are they going to be given a 30-day ban without human approval?

This is causing significant negative attention on Wayfarer in the news, forums, groups, and communities and it would be nice if there could be some clarification around this.

Side note: the automated system is seriously doing a really bad job in the experience of myself and local community.
