In this thread I will present the instances of location edit abuse committed by players in the areas I also play. All the evidence will be posted in comments. Niantic please retire the option of location edit to stop this abuse.

This is the conversation in which the details of placing the marker in the wrong location are being discussed:
Another example of location edit abuse from Mielec, Poland. The submitter is explicitly trying to influence the voters' opinion in the POI description.
This POI Scena w Czerminie has been misplaced recently by agent JopekXD or trainer Karioka33 to "cheat" the S2 cell system. It is still the same group of players in Mielec region, Poland.
Another example of explicit address to influence the reviewers' verdict. The same notorious player with an endless stream of the submission statement signature: "Dziękuję i pozdrawiam z Mielca. M. K."
