...but hell, yeah I'll take the olive branch, and refer suitable cases to you if they appear on here, but perhaps tell your moderation team that we're not at war too?

Don't get me wrong - I don't want a 'serious' board but I'd like posts to be either genuinely amusing, informative and/ or thought provoking.

Is the same thread being ran on TEFL watch or only here?
not really being run on TEFLWatch. Maybe LDMA could figure out how to have the same thread run simultaneously on two different forums, but it's beyond my mysql skills.
I think the mods know we are not at war. LDMA, you might want to remind your own mods that we are not at war. For factual consideration, this whole esscapade was started by one of your former mods who did not like something posted on TEFLWatch. Someone who shared the same user name on both TW and Ajarn Forum posted something considered disparaging by Ajarn standards over on TW. This user was banned by Ajarn and had his personal information divulged by the wayward mod. I think it was a bit heavy handed to ban someone based on a post on another forum. In the end, that started the war. So reiterate, my mods know our forums aren't at war, but you need to let your mods know the same thing. it doesn't concern me or the admin in question anymore. Peace is more important than who was right and who was wrong nearly a year ago.
I and the other admin who left are back in the saddle again and hopefully we can a friendly exchange of opinions and ideas that benefit teachers. It's what everybody concerned wants.

i don't think that's the nic i would use if i was genuinely putting out an olive branch.Originally Posted by Uncle Che
Yeah, wasn't that a Kerux nick?
Why don't you guys just sort things out with a knuckle. You know each other and it's obvious there's still ill feeling between you. you don't know, a good scrap may clear the air.
Sorry. Dunno how that happened, I could've sworn I used the q-Quote button this morning.Originally Posted by Bangkok Phil
That's been the case for about a year now. A year in this business is a long time so I'm not optimistic that there ever will be any professionalism over there. The Mods in general are the worst instigators of an ever increasing unprofessional and arbitrary practice and pattern of behaviours.Originally Posted by LDMA
Do the job adverts provide most of the advertising revenue? That is very unlikely.Originally Posted by Bangkok Phil
If I was thinking of coming to teach in Thailand, I'd look for various sites that contained impartial information. But as the guy who controls what information is seen on this site is being paid by people who will be looking to make money out of my time in Thailand, be it training course providers or employers, there is no impartiality, but a big fat conflict of interests.
And what would they be, Smegster?Originally Posted by tony

As a Thai business, maybe the Bangkok Post will file a complaint about loss of business to an alien competitor.Originally Posted by Bangkok Phil
