Frankly, I do not. This is not a shameless plug for ESLE but at least the jobs I find here turn out to be legitimate and it seems the advertisers are screened. I found this online recently and I immediately stopped visiting ESLCafe as I detest censorship of any kind. http://www.realscam.com/f8/daves-eslcafe-com-tefl-foreign-english-teacher-super-scam-4352/

Why bother to have a forum if teachers cannot complain about something and give their feedback, or report a theft of wages, or warn other colleagues??? I have since done some snooping about ESLcafe on google and found more stuff posted about all the censorship like the links below, and I now realize that bigger does not mean better! Judging by these posts, this hide-and-seek editing has been going on for a looooong time.

At Raoul's, (another ESL forum) they have a thread for "eslcafe refugees" and over 200 former eslcafe users tell how and why they were banned - simply for being factual about visa laws, reporting advertisers that did not pay their last pay checks, and agents scammers who buy advertising at eslcafe and tell newbie tachers it's "okay to work your fist 90 days in China on an L or F visa"
