What happens when a reviewer rejects with "abuse" as the reason?
I get a lot of reviews for survey markers - cheap bits of metal embedded into footpaths at frequent intervals. They're coin sized. Many are stamped with a number but they're mass-produced, not visually unique and do not encourage exploration. I've been 1* as "fake nominations" because I'm sure the nominator knows they're not OK and is just taking a punt.
So, I'm curious.
- Does a human at Niantic ever see these reports?
- Does Niantic look to see if there's any common features between the abuse reports for a country?
- Do they take any action to remove nominations that are still in the system?
