also, (if you have read my previous post, if not read it), one thing you can do is not only report these morons, but also block them and anybody who +1's them as well. if they don't have an audience then they have nothing to post. get what I mean. (if you don't know how to, or are unsure ,  click on their name, click on the downward facing arrow under their name, when the page opens, then you have the options to do whatever you want to.)

whoever is posting porn on this page, you are  a moron. what exactly do you think you are going to gain here? in your tiny little minds you are probably thinking your "great" get over yourself moron, you are  not that smart. where does "Amazing places to see" come into it's own posting this shit here. what makes you think that anybody in their right minds would want to go to your shitty little site.  also those who chose to go to this site, " THIS IS A WARNING " you will be infected by a virus, yes that's right, this site is "SUCKING" you in, so that they can steal your identity, and anything else. you are not safe. those who chose to ignore this, more fool you idiot. get infected, not my problem. this goes for any other page these low life's post to.  same web address on all of these posts.

 yes, it is a problem, and I'm sick of the smut.  but I think that if one keeps up the pressure on Google via reporting it, they will "hopefully"  deal with it, even though they may appear to not be doing anything, they are hatching a plan to deal with it, I sure of it. because it violates their policy on content, (and some may argue that minors will view this smutty content),  I would think that it would be paramount for Google to deal with it.  I also get the BS of having to go through and report & block is a pain in the rear end, but it will be worth the effort to get rid of the filth. Also, what I don't get,  there are so many pron sites out there, so anybody interested would find it on their own, without having to advertise it here. a simple Google search will bring up pages of the sites available. they have got to be very simple minded people who post it here.

it would appear that one of your members is posting everything else but tech stuff.   what has posting everything else other than tech stuff have to do with this community? I came here to see what it has to offer, now because of that one person I am leaving, I can't mute the dumb ass, while I am in this community, so if I get a post from outside of this group, I'll kick his ass. you moron,  +khalid kyle heres something for you, fuck off

I agree, posts are always the same and have no relevance to Tech News. I am considering leaving as well.

went for another walk to-day,  as I had spotted these Agave by the lake, as I was passing. these pictures show the height of these plants ( from afar, to closer). Also saw a sprig of purple in the grass,  see for yourself what I found, also a small, small white flower, notice the size of the grass blades to the flower

people like this Roxane Gay, an American who comes over here spreading BS. Like who really cares,  the ABC (aunty) Q & A  being hosted by women, that's fine. But when you throw in lesbian ideology  it hits the wall like ice-cream. No, not impressed at all. She is only looking at the world from one perspective,   a broken one

went for a walk to-day to my neighbor Paddy, an ex merchant seaman, he's getting on now, but still grows the best #Rose's in the area.  Every year I pay him a visit. These are the last of the season, still looking  great.  He puts a lots of care into his #plants.  Here's your opportunity   to see what he grows..   There is also a pig-face in there.  On the way two #lorikeets  happen to drop by, so they stared in the photos to.

this is a disgusting practice by the Chinese,   they plunder the sea, land  and whatever they think is ok. This goes to show you what thy are doing in Africa, they own nearly all the mineral reserves there.
 
Mozambique will be stripped of its forests 'in just a few years'

 Silva used to be a farmer growing cassava, corn and beans. Eight years ago, Chinese businesspeople visited the area and offered him a high salary for cutting down trees. They lent him a chainsaw and now come by weekly to pick up the trunks by truck, taking a bumpy 60km dirt road.

He knows what he’s doing is illegal. “But what else can I do? When I was a farmer I earned almost nothing and I have to feed seven children.”

...  He and his two helpers earn between 160 and 300 Mozambican meticais (between R60 and R100) a tree, depending on the type of wood. The Chinese sell the rare exotic hardwood trees such as chanate, ebony, monzo (leadwood), panga panga, pau preto and wenge for a hundred times as much back in their home country. Still, Silva’s income isn’t bad in a country like Mozambique, where more than half of the population lives below the poverty line and monthly salaries rarely exceed 3 000 meticais (just over R1,000).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------
* Learn more about illegal logging in Mozambique in the EIA report First Class Crisis at http://eia-international.org/reports/first-class-crisis-chinas-criminal-and-unsustainable-intervention-in-mozambiques-miombo-forests
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Other Mozambican loggers earn less. The 28-year-old Pedro Abilio, for example, receives 2 500 meticais (about R900) for each truck of 80 logs he delivers. He loses some of this money because he officially works for a Mozambican intermediary. The wood, however, is handled directly by the Chinese, who pick up the logs every week using seven trucks that come all the way to Abilio’s remote village in the middle of the forest in Tete province.

Like Silva and Abilio, many Mozambicans are illegally logging for Chinese companies. Often, in the beginning, the Chinese lend them the money to buy equipment such as a chainsaw, locking them into dependency and forcing them to continue cutting to be able to pay off their debts. By buying from individual Mozambicans, the Chinese avoid the high costs of obtaining a logging licence and the obligation to replant trees ...

“If we get pulled over by the police, we give them some money so we can continue our journey,” a smiling “Mr Huo” says as he introduces himself. The 53-year-old Chinese businessperson, who looks like a cowboy in a green camouflage jacket and a grey hat, is the boss of Yixing Madeira, one of the many Chinese timber companies located along the main road to Beira.

On our way to this port city, we pass dozens of trucks piled with logs, often driven by Chinese businesspeople. Tens of thousands of tree trunks, heaped into high mountains, sit waiting on the compounds to be shipped to China, revealing the enormous rate at which the Chinese are emptying the Mozambican primeval forests ...

 Huo says candidly that he prefers to buy wood from individual Mozambicans because this allows him “to make more profit”. It doesn’t bother his conscience. “All rangers, police officers and politicians are criminals over here,” he says.

He relates that rangers showed up on his doorstep recently, offering to sell him illegally logged trees. Huo laughs loudly when we ask what he’s going to do when there’s no wood left in Mozambique. “Move to the next country where there’s still wood, obviously.”

Huo is totally convinced that Mozambique will be stripped of all its hardwood forests “within just a few years”.
