The TEFL Tradesman - Trouble at t'mill

It seems that Sandy McManus' blog The TEFL Tradesman has gone for good as a consequence of some vendetta carried out, probably by one of the usual suspects mentioned at http://sandymcmanus.blogspot.com.
If anyone has any idea who could be behind this attack please let your noble sleuth know.
The recent sequence of articles on the blog about the risks to children from pedofiles were very good.
Just let me know Sandy, if you want them preserved, and I'll post them on The TEFL Blacklist as they deserve a wide audience. (leave them in the third left-luggage locker from the left at Victoria station, number 999).

United English in Queretaro, Mexico

Posted on the "nominate a school for blacklisting section". Any comments?

"United English in Queretaro, Mexico is the epitome of education for profit. The school’s Swiss owner, Mr. K, is truly a leader in unethical business practices in Mexico’s growing TEFL industry. Mr. K takes a predatory approach to hiring teachers with no certification and no experience. The school’s website uses fake testimonials, non-existent schools, and falsified certifications. Teacher contracts are more devious. Work Visa applications are carefully orchestrated and paid for my Mr. K himself who has cleverly found a loophole within the local immigration office. Teachers are usually issued Student visas, participating in the UE teacher training program. Teachers receive no training. Moreover, the school’s “European System” curriculum closely resembles an educational Ponzi scheme. TOEIC exams scores are manipulated to show incremental increases and give the appearance that students are learning English"
