Goof corrections declined due to lack of proof?

I submitted 3 goof deletions for Wizard of Oz because they aren't actually goofs, and all three were declined due to "unable to verify."  I've never had this happen before and never had to provide proof that the goofs were wrong when the proofs are actually the movie itself.  Two of the goofs are misinterpretations of scenes, and one is a factual mistake based on the original poster's own experiences and not the experiences of an entire section of the United States (as in, there is no way to prove the original post, much less my correction/deletion.)  How can i prove these deletions so they can be accepted?  Contribution #190513-011923-630000

Hello, Heather J

A better and usually preferred way to deal with debunked goofs is to correct them as "Incorrectly regarded as goofs" rather then deleting. That way they're less likely to be added anew, which unfortunately will happen, especially with a well-known movie like that.
