Machina Portal = Dead Portal
In my local area there are a lot of portals, a lot of which have been around for a long time, Churches, Monuments, Castles etc etc genuine points of interest.
And then there are a lot of portals which for want of a better description I shall call 'coal' You know the ones I mean.
Now that we have the Machina entity one thing has become apparent, most of these portals are not used they are there just making up the numbers.
Now for the controversial bit. If a portal is 'red' for X amount of time then I think it should be 'destroyed' by the Machina entity and no longer available to Enlightened or Resistance players until some task or other is completed. If its 'red' for say six months or more then it should be removed completely subject to resubmission as clearly its not being of any benefit or used in game.
