    membership had all but dwindled and little on the subject of teaching was talked about.
    For a more professional place take a gander:Thailand Teaching Asia - Living and Teaching in Thailand
    Great for TEFLers and legit teachers,too.

    That still exists ajarn.com. It has had a separate identity/owner for some time now.

    It is just the 'discussion' forum which apparently has closed its doors

    Seems like the site's been closed? Any ideas as to why?

    I'll sum it up for you...

    BKK Phil finally got sued for the comments Louis allowed on his forum, even though the businesses are separate entities. This being Thailand, a judge ruled that because there was once a relationship between the two sites. Phil is responsible for the content that was posted.

    Since Louis didn't care about the forum but the money it brought in, he only collected the paychecks and let his mods "mod" without any oversight. The mods decided to give the same attention to the forum that Louis was giving it and then the stuff happened.

    That's just my guess, what do I know?

    I know of at least one poster that was accused of crimes he didn't commit on the forum. Perhaps one lawyer'ed up.

    Maybe just a question of simple economics: server costs vs. Number of active posters

    It's never about the costs, AJ could have been hosted for about $50 a month. It's about people willing to pay attention to detail. Not only moderation, but updates, server and software settings, etc, etc....it's a lot of work. Louis had already fucked off from teaching in Thailand and basically let the forum in other's care.

    ... and there we have it. You've outed yourself.

    Thing is, whether you lurk or post, you only ever hear your own voice. That is why you are so unpopular.

    So has anyone tweeted the news on BKK Phil's twit page...I don't do the high tech stuff, but as the feed shows up on Ajarn.com, it might get attention...

    It's a shame. Regular posters there also deserved better than "thank you to our posters over the years" by way of explanation. Certainly if it ever re-emerges, af deserves better ownership.

    Be patient in 8 years time you might reach 100 post and be able to read the thread.
    Unless you're going to up your post count of course with a bit of effort you might make It in 6 years.
