Ajarn Forum closed?

Recommended Posts

I just visited ajarn forum (not ajarn dot com) and received this message:

 

"Ajarn Forum has now closed for the foreseeable future. Thank you to all posters, moderators and sponsors for your support over the years."

 

I first joined around 2000. I remember before TV and the teaching FB pages that that was the only place to go for Thailand teaching news and chat. However, it had become an openly hostile place during the last couple of years haunted by nasty trolls.

Yep, the link is gone from the Ajarn.com page.

 

As you said, there were 4 or 5 posters who hijacked every topic and ruined the place.

In 2010 another forum opened its door. ThailandTeaching dot Asia and provides good information on the teaching profession in Thailand.

I agree. The trolls are locked out as well.

No great loss if indeed it is the case. ...gave up on it several years ago, troll central.

I checked last night. It came without any warning. There was a lot of negative trolling by certain people but even some of those same people gave sound advice for the novice teacher. I have no idea why it had to close I noticed that it was based in Singapore and seemed to be making money according to the online website stats.

forum structural failure due to troll fatigue?

The rest of the site is still up, jobs etc, so still earning cash whilst not having to deal with the problems of moderating retard posters, can't blame the owner really.

That is a totally different website, owned and run by totally different people - as was explained on the home page of the forum website.

Didn't know that...... soooo, it's still a mystery then.

That site almost makes this one look legitimate.  Kind of like the boiler room businesses  in Chiang Mai, seemed to have a heavy Canadian influence (an overlay,, perhaps).  Many working with fake degrees and no future  back home (as if they even had a home).  Just a microcosm of the Thai TEFL industry, complete with fakes, frauds, paedos, and people on the run.   Good riddance.

Yep, Louis shut it down. It would have been nice to have a week or so for final words but he decided to pull the plug.
