There should be a harsher punishment for lazy reviewers
This problem has existed for years, but it has aggravated a lot recently to the point of making me feel like this deserves a discussion surrounding "Lazy reviewers".
We all know them... people who tag submissions as duplicate if it has even a hint of being similar to an already existing portal (Exercise machines are the most recurrent offender), people who use presets to quickly get their evaluation done or the worst kind of people who (most probably) only look at the picture and the title and make their decisions off of that information, ignoring vital information from the supporting statement/photo.
My tipping point was today, when I got back the review for a church in my local village that got tagged as a duplicate of the cross which is in front of the church. I can see that the pictures can be seen as similar, but if you take a few seconds to evaluate correctly (which you always should), you could have easily distinguished the two things.
As a community we can't do much about it. We can appeal players of our local community to be more responsible, but in the end this isn't going to be resolved without Niantic doing some changes in the form of more severe punishment or changing the system to make it less possible or impossible to be a lazy reviewer.
What do you guys think? Is there any solution that I'm not seeing? Am I the only one suffering from this problem?
