Google is truly very disturbed about the episode, and said that the organization made a move when the picture was conveyed to its consideration.
Google then considered what further move to make and has now made that move.
“As some of you know already, we have been experiencing escalated attacks to spam Google Maps over the past few months,” said a post on the Map Maker product forum.
“The most recent incident was particularly troubling and unfortunate. A strong user in our community chose to go and create a large scale prank on the Map.
“As a consequence, we suspended auto-approval and user moderation across the globe till we figured out ways to add more intelligent mechanisms to prevent such incidents. All of our edits are currently going through a manual review process.”
Google unquestionably does not, and it is verifying that it will never be uncovered, or see its clients uncovered, to such revolting characterisation.
Physically checking alters for pictures of pissing robots require some serious energy, and Google does not have room schedule-wise to do it.
To be reasonable to everybody, in light of the fact that not everybody will be doodling can divider like symbolism onto Maps, Google is simply going to stop anybody making an alter.
This will spare time chasing and recover legitimate clients from squandering their time making alters that Google may not get around to seeing for quite a while in any case.
It’s an impermanent thing that Google has put set up until it works out how to handle the advanced tackle issue.
“Given the current state of the system, we have come to the conclusion that it is not fair to any of our users to let them continue to spend time editing,” the firm added.
“Every edit you make is essentially going to a backlog that is growing very fast. We believe that it is more fair to only say that if we do not have the capacity to review edits at roughly the rate they come in, we have to take a pause.
“We have hence decided to temporarily disable editing across all countries starting Tuesday May 12 2015, till we have our moderation system back in action. This will be a temporary situation and one that we hope to come out of as soon as possible.”
