Abuse of description editing to direct gym removal or change (mass posting)

I found an unusual edit during the review. I've been to me twice.

Title of the Wayspot: 白ボタン

Location: https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=37.284326,140.392122&z=16&pll=37.282858,140.392122

City: 福島県須賀川市


The content is to consult with the police and the government (without grounds) and ask them to eliminate the gym, vice versa, or change the gym to another location. They seem to misunderstand editing the description as an inquiry form to the Pokemon GO team ...

In any case, it is an edit that has nothing to do with the explanation of the spot, and it corresponds to misuse, so please investigate.
