    Japanese trees

    Hi
    Would you please explain me meaning of bold sentence.
    Thanks

    XXXX is a security app for activists and journalists, we believe in that, because we work with other idea that is a freedom press nation in Columbia and we know that the Japanese have a lot of trees (????) …think about from the south to the south, from the community to the community, what would be a good security app for them and work with them.

    Re: Japanese trees !!!

    Where did you find that text? It doesn't make sense.
    “Every miserable fool who has nothing at all of which he can be proud, adopts as a last resource pride in the nation to which he belongs; he is ready and happy to defend all its faults and follies tooth and nail, thus reimbursing himself for his own inferiority.”

    — Arthur Schopenhauer

    Re: Japanese trees !!!

    The bold sentence is just about the only part that does make sense.

    It doesn't make sense to me either, and the only connection I can possibly make is that some people call printed media dead tree press to contrast paper-based media with the internet. However, the whole text is garbled and incoherent, jumping around and not connecting things.

    The paragraph has no grammar and no meaning.

    Re: Japanese trees

    That paragraph reads exactly like the word salads one finds in spam emails. I have a hunch it was generated, not written.
