Somebody is posting fake potholes on I-81 at the Maryland-PA border and there is not a pothole.

I think we replied in discord, but I wanted to memorialize the response.

As editors, we don't typically get involved in the app's reporting features, unless something rises to the level of an inappropriate nature, hate speech, threats, etc.

Normal everyday fake reports or misleading posts will get many "NOT THERE" responses from the Wazers driving by, and eventually the posting user's reporting 'reputation' will become so low, they'll lose privileges in the app. This automated process is handled thru Waze HQ own algorithms, so we don't really know how long it takes, or how many bad reports must be rejected before they'll lose the ability to post reports.

That being said, thanks for keeping an eye out, and if you continue to see problems with a specific user, screenshot the offending reports (w/username), and PM them to me. Maybe staff can investigate.
