Dear (Director of chain school in Moscow)

Yeah, it must be tiring being the nominal leader of the absolute worst McLanguage school in Russia. I can only pity you.

Oh, and best of luck to you too. I suspect you'll need it.

It must burn you that you cant be more of a dick than that, for fear that he would call down to the school and give the word to make visa trouble for you. Otherwise calling him a spineless pussy would be in order. Statements such as "your an adult" would cause me to wish to give a beating to that homo... Good luck man...

Let's please smear them on the forums. The average gap year kid may not read them, but at least it would be satisfying.

Agree totally - the forums are a very effective way to get revenge, and most foreign language school owners are still unaware of them, so up-their-own-arse are they.

Just make sure you send them a link to the offending/offensive stuff. They won't reply, being so ashamed of their own poor English, but they will press-gang some lackey (DOS?) into writing a reply. And that means you can start the whole round of throwing insults all over again!!

See, it's a real win-win situation!!
