A player use Wayfarer to insult and to slander
Player(s) (I may think of azerqs ) uses Wayfarer to slander, insult and troll players of the other faction.
Here are 3 examples:
First and I can name the player with no doubts : azerqs --->The change of photo: he takes poor quality photos, then votes for this one to become the main photo ( maybe with his double accounts?).
Here the photo of the portal at its creation
and then the photo of this player.
and with 24 votes, it becomes the principal pic
This greatly lowers the quality of the portal network.
And someone also uses wayfarer to defame or insult. using edits of name or description
Here are 2 examples:
-ENL = CHEATERS THIEVES
portal coordinates : https://intel.ingress.com/intel?ll=46.14807,0.29585&z=17&pll=46.14807,0.29585
ANCHOR OF A CHEATER (MY NAME)
ANCHOR OF A CHEATER PLAYING WITH MULTIPLE ACCOUNTS
I'm really hurt by these insinuations.
I'm an honest player, I've been playing ingress for over 6 years, and you can go through all my logs, I'm not afraid, because I know I've never cheated in my life.
There are already enough portals to evaluate and enough edits of names or descriptions in Wayfarer, so we don't have to spend extra time on this kind of edits.
Please, BAN those accounts because they brings more than a bad atmosphere, they destroys what millions of players have managed to build: a network of nice, accurate and interesting POI.

A very similar thing is happening in my area. Some of the portals that the main picture was mine got pursued and replace by a worse one on purpose. That's why I suggested the removal of the agent name from the pictures, to avoid this kind of stupidy based of faction and personal issues, allowing the votes to be based only on overrall quality of the picture.
We've had the same issue locally too with description edits, some people just have too much time on their hands. However Niantic Support were actually quite helpful in getting it sorted.
Tag people much?
These instances should be reported on the Wayfarer abuse form. Logging them here isn't going to do anything. And there is a dedicated Wayfarer forum as well here :
done, thank you
When you come across one of those editions, you can also report it directly in Wayfarer.
