All the NET'S I met in Korea were just wonderful people.
« on: March 16, 2020, 08:03:27 pm »
I often read on this site that there are a lot of losers, people that shouldn't be let loose on kids and weirdos etc that are NET'S in Korea.

During my 6 and a half odd years in Korea I never met one NET that would fall into that category. Now, admittedly I don't drink so I didn't frequent bars/pubs or nightclubs, perhaps the above frequent those places? I don't know. I met plenty of NET'S from all the English speaking countries at our various district camps and SMOE meetings and all of them were just great.

When I read some of the posts here, there appear to be some that love to have a go at their fellow NET'S just because they have a different opinion. Perhaps I am guilty too.

Anyway, I just got to thinking, perhaps we should tone it down a bit and be more supportive of each other.

If you look at the lessons section of the site, you can see what a talented bunch of people the NET'S in Korea are and to be honest, Korea should be grateful for them.

Just my two cents worth.

There is no known medical cure for stupidity!

I agree with you!

I have met so many "lifers" (life long friends here) and although I've met the couples/people that are cheap and odd, that is quite scarce in my experience.  Mostly the foreigners here are chill and willing to help and have "normal" interactions.

I trust some particularly heinous, vile subterfuge on your side is at the root of this otherwise arbitrary mistreatment condoned by the Machiavellian Kyndo. :angel:

     Hey man, I wasn't a mod back when all that went down. I mean, sure, I like a little vile machiavellianing every now and then, but  I generally am able to get that out of my system during the teaching of my day-to-day lessons.
     If, for some reason (like not being able to go to school for several months straight due to some viral panic, for example) I can't do that, then I suppose I would get my fix editing people's online comments to make them sounds even sillier than they already do.  :angel:


(I'm joking. I'd never do that!)

I've met a few janky people here, but they seem pretty evenly spread out among gyopos, Americans, Aussies, Irish and Brits. The Canadians weren't really janky, more just weirdos. No Kiwis or Saffers though. But that's just my experience. Your mileage may vary.
