Deliberate Misuse of the Abuse option
I understand its alot easier for Niantic to simply accept the end result of a POI review and move along figuring you can simply resubmit it if you disagree. However they really should add something where you can more straightforwardly appeal if someone has deliberately labelled you portal in the Abuse category solely to greatly reduce its chances of being approve.
Now I dont mind, like so be it if i have to go resubmit it etc but there really needs to be a consequence for people that do that out of spite and it wouldnt be hard and take like 10sec at most to determine if there was a legitimate reason.
(While i admit i could have taken a slightly sharper picture, i wouldnt label that a 1* due to low quality photo but maybe I'm just a little lenient)
