Just wondering why people on here post newspaper articles. Seems a bit weird reading the morning newspaper and then popping round to your neighbors house and handing over the newspaper for them to read. Why not just comment on the comment page on the newspaper article page with other people who read the newspaper without an assist?

That's what a forum is. A group of people who interact and share opinions.

This is a comments section.

Also, if someone posts a Korea Times article or Daily Mail article for people to comment on, then I don't have to click on a link and give them a hit.

That makes sense I suppose.

To comment.

People here have a shared expereince of being teachers in Korea and most of us are around a similar age. So it might make the comments of those here more interesting to us personally.

Is it really that hard to understand? This is some Pecan style comprehension.

Well I understood the title of this thread.  :rolleyes:

I just thought if i were to read an article on a Korean newspaper website I'd just comment there instead of coming here. As everyone already there would have something to say.

I personally feel it's more a matter of remaining anonymous by posting your tripe on here instead of there with your facebook name. Of course one could just make a fake facebook account but still.

That one teacher who talks at about the same decibel range as a commercial airplane taking off. My ears.  :cry:

I've posted a few time of the KT facebook page. Most stories there get zero comments. The ones that do, half are just people tagging someone to read it or complete dopes and a lot of like Philippinos going "Oh. This is terrible. God bless". Which is fine, but hardly condusive to discussion.
More discussion happens here.

I don't understand why people don't just share it as a personal message. You're absolutely right about half the comments being other people's names. I want to see insight into the article, not "Bethany Smith James Woods Peter Griffith"

I am just not ready for work today.

But at least my hair is all swishy and not frizzy. Perfect for the head-tossing.

Is the new job still Korea-based?

I don't have one yet, but I have several leads, one is Japan and one is Korea based. Ideally, the Korea one is the one I want. It would drastically reduce my commute and the pay is much better and I am not completely ready to go to Japan yet. 2019, would be better. I was just positing that leaving this one and starting a new one is both scary and exciting. Especially now, since I do not have a new one at the moment...haha.

Why don't you show her how it's done?

I am really really glad that it is Friday! I am exhausted. This will be my first weekend with nothing planned. I do not intend getting out of my pjs. All food will be delivered and will be pure caloric madness.

Cloudy here today and cold, only 25C. Glad I drove the car to work and not the motorbike. I woulda froze to death. The car makes a good excuse to stop and do some Christmas shopping. Gonna put the tree up tomorrow. Excited!
