    Hello; in my opinion "to see" + "to be" is wrong. Otherwise, "to be", "being", and "which are" are essentially equivalent, but it would be better not to put anything.
    - I don't want (to see) any more posts submitted....
    See you.

    Are these grammatically correct or not? They are so confusing.

    Hello,
    1. I don't want to see any more posts which are submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief. ... ok but clumsy
    2. I don't want to see any more posts being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief. ...ok but clumsy
    3. I don't want to see any more posts to be submitted claming that Rahim is a thief. ...ok but clumsy
    4. I don't want to see any more posts which are being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief. ...ok but too clumsy
    5. I don't want any more posts which are being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief. ...ok but clumsy
    6. I don't want any more posts being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief. ...ok but clumsy
    7. I don't want any more posts to be submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief....ok but clumsy

    I don't want to see any more posts claiming that Rahim is a thief ...would be correct
    (a post is a little text submitted in a paper or any other format,then it is useless to add this word in that sentence).

    Hello
    I imagine somebody protesting against a certain type of post, of e-mail he is receiving, the idea being :
    Stop sending posts pretending that Rahim is a thief.
    The simpler it is said, the better it is, no use adding useless words.


    1. I don't want to see(read, receive, have to deal with) any more posts which are submitted(useless) claiming that Rahim is a thief.
    2. I don't want to see any more posts (being) submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief.
    3. I don't want to see any more posts to be submitted claming that Rahim is a thief.
    4. I don't want to see any more posts which are being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief.
    You could say : I don't like the posts which are being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief but you can't say I don't want to see because the object of that "I don't want to see" can't be "being submitted" at the same time as you don't want the idea of it.

    5. I don't want any more posts which are being submitted (useless + see above) claiming that Rahim is a thief.
    6. I don't want any more posts being submitted claiming that Rahim is a thief.
    7. I don't want any more posts to be submitted claming that Rahim is a thief.
