Last month some guy thought it would be funny to submit a depiction of a Bugdroid pissing on an Apple. Google quickly took down the edit after images started spreading across the web, but it isn’t stopping there. After experiencing an uptick in spam over the past few months, the company will now temporarily turn off the ability for users to submit Google Maps edits.
The shutdown will take effect tomorrow, May 12th. A notice is greeting users who head over to google.com/mapmaker.
