    Entertaining in any case.

    My money definitely on TSR. These guys cut to the chase, no bullshit or antsy pansy stuff. Get out there TSR and kick some ass.

    Oops sorry Topper. I missed that part. Any further comments...... on the blog, for sure.

    Thanks for the effort, eh.

    With a choice of three it's interesting that one (TSR) chose to come out with the same tired bollix line rather than answering what I thought appeared to be perfectly reasonable questions.

    Seems that's the choice of the old skool rabid response crew. Perhaps people interested in school experience stories more than tired old feuds might give them a wide berth.

    Oh and look it's the old DB site still dissing away..so that makes it a choice of one of the old mods there....AKAIK it ain't Def, I'd like to think Greg's well over it, which leaves Peaceblondie or...hmmm...

    It's prolly the same old tired bollix line because the person doing the interviewing was continuing the same old tired bollix line. It's strange that the questions poised, which affect the credibility of the interviewer, were not answered.

    But this is not my issue to deal with at all. I just love watching it from the sidelines. I, and I am sure everyone else, feel comforted knowing that the fox is watching over the henhouses

    The sites have their own policies. They do not need to answer to anyone here. I logged on to all three sites. Only one seems to be attracting users which of course is the key requirement of any website. Hence that one I shall use. Glad something is back so in any case.

    As for the ongoing dispute. Added both to ignore list.

    Funny how the other two interviewees managed to avoid answering in the same old tired bollix line. It all depends on how one approaches an interview I suppose.

    Re: Interview with the new TEFL forum admins!

    As the admin of one of the sites (Thai Efl Watch) .. I have to say that having 2 and a half sites is quite OK. (not saying which one derserves the "1/2")

    Do a Google search on just about anything these days and you are presented with thousands of choices. There's still room for a few more contenders .. I'm trying my best .. but if eventually, somewhere down the track, someone does a better job .. I'll tip my hat to 'em.

    I thought the "Interview questions" were fair enough and to the point. A pity one of the admins just used it to have a tempermental rant at the the "interviewer". Leads me to believe that the admins of the "ressurected" TEFL Watch" .. a.k.a TEFL School Reviews and the "old" TEFL Watch" are indeed one and the same... as suggested already. (Hi Greg)

    Job well done Topper .. at least you "give a shit"

    mcm .. a.k.a "keekwai"

    Who the hell could take Topper seriously in this? No one asked him to do this and I doubt many people really give a shit. Surely there are more productive ways of using your free time.

    Yes, obviously we are all believing that he has no agenda here. Despite the fact that he is now promoting himself as some kind of Thai-TEFL godfather, he insists on the line "I'm just a simple poster."

    If I was working on a website I would keep him at arm's length - he has a nasty habit of seeking to destroy the hard work of others in his quest to have things his own way

    Whether or not he "destroyed" the old TEFLwatch is a question that has been debated long and largely yawnfully - what is certain is that the site started to become unmanageable the very day he was given mod buttons there. Sure, he only played the game - but he must have had some pretty fierce motivation

    And now we are to believe that here is a guy with no personal agenda ......

    I read quite well thank you. I also learnt how to "read between the lines" .. I was presuming you included yourself with the statement ..
    Surely there are more productive ways of using your free time
    If you were not including yourself .. and just dictating what others should do with their free time .. then by all means go ahead and waste your time ... God! I love idiots .. Thanks for the laugh.
