I am sending this short notice to please implore someone to speak to the Ghanaweb Site personnel. They currently have a pornographic picture that they have posted with a woman and a man's private parts. I was so ashamed to think that Ghana has allowed such things to be placed on a website that has news and other information. I will contact someone here in my country because this Website is able to bypass a filter. There should not be pornographic material on this site. The ad that has porno is #226854. I still want to believe that Ghana is not permitting such distasteful things on a website that is viewed by children.
