The Helium hotspot denylist is a community-driven blacklist which any member of the network can submit additions to if suspected of "gaming" or "spoofing" (fraudulent) reporting of location. You can read more about it here.
Please note that any person for any arbitrary reason can submit additions to this list; it is effectively a "guilty until proven innocent" approach. IoWE does not control this list in any way and there are no specific reasons articulated as to why any given hotspot may end up on this list.
To be removed from this list, IoWE can submit an appeal on your behalf. You will just need to submit the hotspot name along with a photo or two of the hotspot and/or its outdoor antenna setup (where applicable). While an appeal is not a guarantee that the hotspot will be removed, nor is there a fixed timeline on when it may be removed if such is the case, in our experience to date each appeal submitted has been successfully removed from the list.
