In response to are forums bad for you? (Brock The Badger)

Meh, like all slightly pleasurable things; be it drinking, smoking, good food, whores etc, forums should only be enjoyed in moderation.

That's why I often disappear for long periods of time and later reappear. There's other stuff that I can do that either makes me money or is at least, more productive in another sense.

This forum has served a purpose in warning teachers about the perils of the ESL world, our tendency to enjoy watching shit school owners squirm as they are led by us into accidentally exposing themselves as the liars and cheats that they really are, was probably a good and productive thing.

As for Turnoi, some people liked him, some people didn't; he did do a good job of tearing such schools apart in his own comical and amusing way, his wife had apparently died years ago and he already has adult children as far as I'm aware. As for his books being best-sellers... No. If he ever made large amounts of money by writing, it would have most likely been years ago before just about anything could be pirated and people actually bought physical copies rather than using Kindles etc

We may be victims of our own success, but there are less reports of shit schools appearing on here now. I don't think for one moment that we have really done anything to eradicate shit schools in China, but we've made those that bother to do the research aware, shit schools rarely dare to ever post fake positive reviews to recruit teachers etc...
