The tax break is for companies only. Title implies more than that.

I've noticed more of this kind of these clickbait titles lately.
I don't normally complain about it and read most articles but this time it did "P" me off a bit as I do have Solar at home just to figure out the title was misleading!

MyBB is not what it used to be. Shitty articles. Clickbaity headlines. Forums users are way more ruthless. Never mind stronger racism. Mods are almost non-existent.
Spam and reported posts get dealt with pretty quick, so not sure what else you're expecting to see from mods. Not sure where the racism is either.

The latest matric pass rate is 8%

More fkn clickbait!

Something like "Matric pass rate for progressed learners is 8%" or similar would be OK.

There is a very vocal chorus on the forum that does the daily song and dance that whites are being unfairly treated in the media/law and anc/black people are fking it all up. Some of it may contain some truth but it's a never ending barrage of childish digs and temper tantrums, virtually never an insightful discourse.

It's getting tiring, nauseating.

You get clickbait, then you get plain out lies, because no employees of the SABC have been fired according to the MyBB article, just suspended.

Employees fired for sabotage at the SABC

@rpm, please give staff writer a talking to for lying.

#ImStaying is a big target for criminals

This headline is nonsense and it appears to have an agenda to spread FUD around the Imstaying hashtag specifically. Unnecessary.
