For those curious it seems one person claimed this was due to a conversationn i had where asked about if we would block child porn... I said it isnt something we ever faced and didnt have set rules on it, but i am pretty certain we would block it.

Anyway shortly after that I had the conversation witht he mods and as expectted agreed we would block it, our TOS was updated accordingly with the following:

Russia is sick: Russia burning off $10m worth of gas every day - BBC News

Aerial images have shown a Russian energy facility near its border with Finland burning off supplies of natural gas worth approximately $10m US dollars.

It's said the plant has been burning off gas, which would have previously been exported to Germany, for months.

The burning has also triggered a warning from climate change experts with its close proximity to the Arctic Circle.
