I wish a comprehensive blog post like the one found here existed for every university in the Gulf.

Maverick, an equally thorough counterpoint would certainly be welcomed. The blog linked gives one teacher's perspective, and I liked the thorough description of the process from arrival forward. For someone who's never been to the region and has many questions about what to expect, it seemed to paint a fair picture. Now, if it's not what QU really is (or Qatar, for that matter) why not post an equally thorough description of your own experience...cradle to grave.

From someone who's read posts on these forums for years, I tend to look for balance. Those are the posts the carry the most stock for me. This guy posted his name and photo, so I can see why there isn't anything too critical, though he seems quite happy with the work conditions thus far. Isn't it possible that others in the foundation programme are as content as this man has represented himself to be?

So... you are calling this person a liar? That he wasn't met at the airport? That he has lied about his flat? That his photos are not actually of Qatar?

Or is he not worthy of having his own opinion because it doesn't agree with yours?

DUH... obviously... so why not make it clearer. Your "advanced" use of additional smilies did little to add any sense or logic to your attempts to attack the blogger or whatever it is that you are trying unsuccessfully to do.
