Wayfarer Group on Facebook is Promoting Misinformation
Hi! I am getting increasingly concerned about a runaway facebook group. https://www.facebook.com/groups/2495067887480865/
This group uses Niantic logos, your names, giving people the impression that they are approved of by Niantic. @NianticCasey is a member and they have since posted that they have Niantic approval. However, their leadership has been promoting misinformation and giving poor advice about submissions. He likes to delete comments from anyone who disagrees with him, has banned dozens of ingress agents who joined in good faith to give feedback and tips, simply because they disagreed with some of that misinformation.
Today someone complained because a mural on the back of a private garage in an alley was rejected. He is still there, right now, giving advice telling that person to resubmit it and telling the reviewers in the group that it is a valid submission. Here you can see a response that I left telling people that it's not valid, and he has been repeatedly deleting any comment by anyone who tries to quote the AMA or clarify anything that disagrees with him. Please do something, this is completely out of hand and they're using your name for it!
For those wanting an alternative group, this one has now been founded with a commitment to not ban or silence people even if their opinions are not agreed with: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NianticWayFarer/
