    What is wrong with The Sun newspaper?
    The publication has attracted extensive amounts of controversy since its foundation in 1964, having been repeatedly accused of regularly falsifying information and having misleading headlines, as well as allegations of being a perpetrator of the spread of fake news.
    It is OK, I know why Ukraine spreads this forged "news" within country - they just announced next wave of mobilization "from 18 till 60" and need motivation for "soldiers", also I understand why "The Sun" publish it - they need shocking news. But why you bring that here?

    I cannot answer for why Dab69 posted the report, but I can point out that "The Sun" was not alone in reporting this event.

    The report was also carried by more reputable outlets in a range of countries, e.g., The Guardian (Video appears to show Russian soldier castrating Ukrainian ...https://www.theguardian.com › world › jul › video-app...), The Times of Israel (In video, Russian troops appear to castrate Ukrainian war ...https://www.timesofisrael.com › in-video-russian-troops...), the Indian TV news program WION (Horrific video shows Russian soldiers castrating Ukrainian ...https://www.wionews.com › world › horrific-video-sho...), Newsweek (Video of Russian Soldier Allegedly Castrating Ukraine POW ...https://www.newsweek.com › ... › Ukraine › War Crimes), the Australian publication News.com.au ('Sickening' video shows gagged Ukrainian POW being castrated... https://www.news.com.au › world › europe › news-story), UPI (Russian soldier allegedly castrates Ukrainian prisoner on video... https://www.upi.com › World-News › 2022/07/30 › rus...), and even Fox News (Graphic video of Russian soldier allegedly castrating ..https://www.foxnews.com › world › graphic-video-russia...).

    A long list of outlets carried the report, as an internet search shows ("About 389,000 results (0.42 seconds)). Not all these outlets "need shocking news." It would be strange if none of them thought the news was "forged"! In fact, many reports, such as that on WION, explicitly noted that they could not independently verify the authenticity of the clip which was being circulated. They also noted that, though it could not be determined exactly when or where the footage was taken, several reports indicated that the act could have happened weeks before near the Azot chemicals plant in the eastern city of Sievierodonetsk. They also stated that the Russian soldier committing the act was previously filmed in the vicinity of the Azot chemical works in Sievierodonetsk in eastern Ukraine and that he was serving with a Chechen formation known as the Akhmat battalion.

    Your own quote "What is wrong with The Sun newspaper?" comes from an article entitled "Why is The Sun hated by Liverpool fans & banned in many places?" (https://www.goal.com/en-gb/news/why-the-sun-is-hated-by-liverpool-fans-banned-in-many-place/2hrhnj5tch2r1ae7tllvac6fb," written by Cady Siregar, and published on 16 Jan 2022 07:00+08:00 ). The article deals with the reason why the tabloid is hated in the city of Liverpool because of its coverage of the Hillsborough football ground tragedy in 1989, when it published an article about the police wrongly attributing all blame surrounding the human crush to the Liverpool fans in attendance, accusing them of being drunken hooligans. "Goal" is an international association football news website (see, e.g., https://www.goal.com/zh-tw). It specializes in sports journalism only, and is hardly a credible source on other issues.

    For board members who do not read Chinese, the message below the condom is "拦人这块. 从不会让你生望."

    One of the several ways to translate/interpret this message in English is as a threat: "Stop this. Never let you live."

    Heh, in conjunction with grandma Pelosi's visit it means different... something like "This barrier will never let you down". This is exactly why advertising is so viral now.

    "Never let you down" would be better translated in your version as "Never disappoint you."

    If this "viral advertisement" is a veiled allusion to shooting down an airplane, it raises memories of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH 17/KLM Flight KL4103 over the Donbas Region in 2014.

    211 pages has to be an all-time record for the loooooooongest post in Gay Forum history and we're still only on "The Brink".

    Just imagine how long this post would be if a real war broke out.

    Hey...come to think of it, I thought this whole thing was going to be over in 2 days. Go figure!

    Typo, it is "拦人这块 从不会让你失望". When run through google translate with wrong hanzi, it gives wrong translation, whereas correct hanzi gives "This block will never let you down".
