It's been some time since I've been back to the Ajarn forums, where is the Thai School Watch site? I'd like to look up what people are saying about a school, but I can't find it???
Gone these many years now.
It had two admins in two incarnations but ultimately it could not stand up to the pressure of litigation from some of the big schools that were maligned.
We could all sit outside on banana lounges discussing the best way to rebuild a 4WD transmission and agree, through shared stories of conquests supporting our assertions, that there is no basis to the proposition that those least assured of their persuasions are the first to condemn others for theirs.
REALLY??? That was the best part of the site to read, just for sheer entertainment value alone. What happened?
...you might try here: not sure how active the site is...
...majestically enthroned amid the vulgar herd...
When I win the lottery, to keep myself mentally active, I'm gonna open up a new site of this nature....
They aint gonna pay me off, scare me off or even blow me off (We shall leave that to more experienced hands)
I wont bow down! I wont be intimidated! I will tell it like it is!
If you're a shit school, I'll say it!
If you are an agency, with the morals of a diseased mucus sack, who hide behind shitty libel and slander laws so you can get away with being 'orrible c/nts, I'll tell the world.
Be afraid. Be very afraid .

I like you. You remind me of when I was young and stupid.
I founded TSW (one night when I'd had one drink too many)...I lasted about 8 weeks at first, before my cover was blown, I gave to ex-AF admin Marko to look after, and he hated it too., then I took it back over for a little wile, til shutting it down after more legal threats, and massive trolling....no way I would openly admin a site like that again.
Greg Woods then took up the mantle with TEFL Watch which was a whole different saga, which as we all know went on for about 2 year before even he grew tired of the bullshit that follows the running of these kind of sites. Others have made more minor attempts to revive the format, but none have lasted long.
Nothing to do with money, really...more to do with the fact that Thai defamation laws are criminal rather than civil, and that somebody seeking to take you to court can do so even if you yourself haven't posted a statement, that the statement can be as banal as "Somchai's TEFL Shack is rubbish to work for!" to be classed as defamatory, and schools nare not even required to give a proper takedown notice prior to taking complaints to the police.

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.
