Unbalanced treatment of reports
Yesterday around the areas of play AF07-ROMEU-12 & 15 a spoofer decided to vandalize the game.
This has become a common event that has been causing a flood of accusations among players of both factions. Such so, that reports end up being made just for mentioning an agent of the opposing faction.
Well, so far it seems to be a normal day in ingress (Unfortunately).
What I would like to expose publicly is the treatment these reports have been having. NIA is clearly treating some reports as priority. So much so that some reports have actions taken in within minutes, in an almost super-human so called verification.
There are many more cases, but to follow NIA's policy of protecting the privacy of others I will be exposing just the facts that have happened to me:
Fact 1: it has been a very long time I wrote on comm, so I can't be wrong on which message caused the action taken by NIA. A very long time.
Fact 2: the message causing the action is written from so far, that only the reporting agent could have read it first. Then others if he has shared it.
Fact 3: from message to action taken by NIA only 3 minutes have passed!
Fact 4: 2 reports have been made by me about the same time, one on win-trading and another on a comm public message, 24h ago at the time of this writing.
Fact 5: both reports are still waiting for a reply...
Why such a big difference of speed in the handling of the reports?
Fact 6: there are a lot more situations like this. This is not an isolated case! This is the common situation for some time now. So much that it has been exposed by other players on the same area of play.
I understand that all cases are different, and that some are obvious while others are more complex, nevertheless 3 minutes on a message voided of accusations nor insults versus a message accusing some players of a faction of cheating without any action taken in 24h is a clear biased processing of the reports.
"O jogo de alguns sapos é tão facil. sentados no sofá sem fazer nada. Good Game. este jogo esta top."
"@_________ é uma tristeza isto ser possivel. Mas também é obvio quem beneficia desses movimentos. Se fosse 1 sapo, de certeza que todos aqueles links que bloqueiam o vosso jogo na Margem Sul teriam ficado como tem estado faz semanas!"
Can you guess which message had the 3 minute verification??
