More "outed" Wayfarer Shenanigans

Whether via OPR or Wayfarer, this need's Niantic's attention. We have repeatedly heard that this behaviour (false locations and then edits) amounts to "abuse", with potential/likely consequences to one or more players' Wayfarer (submission, reviewing) access.

@NianticCasey if you can direct this to somebody's attention. According to the intel map, this cluster is still live in the POI database.,-15.433924&z=17&pll=28.129057,-15.433924

    They don't care. This is the latest creation in Portugal:

    Reported. But they don't care.

    I'd like to clarify something here. Technically these portals are *accurate*.

    What happened in this place, because it's come up time and time again, as the bad example, is that people submitted portals with a bad location (intentionally), and then once they became stops, they were edited to their correct locations. If you look at the actual portals, they're all there in the correct places along the path. They do exist there. They are real.

    The "abuse" was someone creating them and getting them approved in an inaccurate place so that it generated a Stop before moving them to the correct location.

    If those locations are accurate, then there isn't much that Niantic will do about it. The problem comes from either reviewers not confirming locations the first time or submitters taking advantage of the lack of our outdated street views.
