    Re: In answer to TEFL Watch part 2

    I don't really see what the point is in this. The only thing it's doing is drawing attention yet again to a clash of egos. From the looks of it the only people who knew anything about this was people at TEFL watch and BP.

    I think you need to get out more BP. Get a hobby or something and stop wasting your time worrying about this, It's not going to bring down Ajarn.com, I'm sure LDMA can handle things over here.

    Go on get your binoculars out. I'm sure I just saw a greater spotted mina bird of there.

    I can't believe that a mountain has been made out of such a molehill.
    Are you actually reading this? Do you think I care?

I don't really mix or talk to anyone there and at the end of every month I take my money and say thank you very much"
    That's the kind of guy Jim was.

    Put Pete's story on the front page and it'll sell newspapers. Put Jim's story on the front page and it won't. Isn't that the underlying problem with all this?
    It seems that the rules regarding the naming and shaming of schools are only enforced/abided by at the discretion of the moderators!

    To be perfectly honest I cannot see the point of making this thread either Phil.

    Our position is clear on naming schools, and I would again add that this policy is in common with the vast majority of teacher forums. If the users of TEFL Watch have a problem with it and post there as such, then it is up to the management to decide on whether they take action on such comments. As has been shown to be the case on this occaision, our sites olive branch seems to be holding up and the management of TEFL Watch have apparently put a hold on an Ajarn slagging.

    I will do the same here for TEFL Watch by locking this thread. I agree...mountain out of molehill.

    Sorry Louis, I've opened the thread to make a final comment.

    It seems that I did make a mountain out of a molehill with this thread and for that I apologise. Sometimes you say things in the heat of the moment and after a good night's sleep (well, a night's sleep anyway) and a Manchester United win, it all seems a bit trivial come the morning. Oh well, I'll put me hands up and admit this is one I probably got wrong. My apologies to all.

    Perhaps Squirrel's right - I should get out more.
