Ugh. So the 65-year-old allegedly responsible for sending threatening emails to current and former University of Pittsburgh professors, and the man behind some bat-shit crazy ramblings against Pitt on his Facebook page and another website, was an English as a Foreign Language teacher in China (here he is on a Chinese EFL jobs site). It's the oddballs, eccentrics, and misfits that Asian EFL attracts that help give the rest---the motivated, the curious, and the sincere---and the industry itself a bad name.
