Thank you, Niantic, for listening. I would hope (but won’t hold my breath) the local Ingress communities would take a hard look at those serving suspensions before accepting them back.
Agents,

Niantic is committed to safety and fair gameplay for Ingress. Over the past several weeks we have worked to identify users, administrators, and creators of tools indicated in recent scraping incidents. As a result, we continue to enforce our Terms of Service in the following ways:

-Terminating the accounts and revoking access to Ingress for the creators, administrators, and financiers of scraping tools storing or serving identifiable information of Ingress users without those users’ permission.

-Banning the accounts of players using these scraping tools who have also received prior warnings or have documented TOS violations.

-Temporarily suspending (for 30 days) the accounts of players using these tools, followed by 180 days of account probation.

Using data, systems, or tools designed to negatively impact the player community through extracting, scraping, or indexing Ingress data in violation of our Terms of Service is prohibited. We will continue to take appropriate action against violators of our TOS as supporting evidence arises or as found by our own investigation. We would also like to see the community promote positive and constructive actions as we work together and move forward. Remember that which unites us as Ingress Agents is far greater than that which divides us as Agents of a faction.

Is anyone seeing exact duplicates to review? Probably 1 in 10 that I get to review is an exact duplicate - not just the same portal, or a similar picture, but the exact same picture on the same spot. It's unlikely that the portal was submitted twice with the exact same picture. Are candidates being removed from review correctly when they get promoted to portals?
