Not all members of the Koptalk Gold Club are as loyal as the site owner would like. Especially the ones who sent us this message from the owner of the sites himself.
In fact this is a message complaining about Gold Club members passing the information they pick up in there onto others.
There are three reasons why Dunk doesn't want his Gold Club information sharing –
- If the info is available elsewhere there is less need to pay to be a member
- If the info (gossip) is available elsewhere then people can freely comment elsewhere on it being false or stolen.
- If the info is in relation to illegal activities he's got more chance of being caught.
Here's the message from Koptalk, this one relates to distribution of illegal video and audio.

LFC Live Section – Video & Audio Section etc

We're looking at providing as much content and info as possible next season that will ensure you get to see even more LFC content.
People in the UK may see a lot of stuff about LFC etc but let's think of our overseas Reds who rely on us (all of us) to help them.
I know that last season people were leaking info from the LFC Live section despite Al's requests not to. If that happens again this season I will pull that section altogether and no doubt Al will communicate with who he chooses. He spends a lot of free time helping everyone out. He's nothing to do with KOPTALK, he's a member like the rest of you but he has bent over backwards to make the place more entertaining so please follow his requests next season. If you share info from here on other sites, you will lose a valuable service and your membership if identified.
Also, another member is prepared to offer a lot of high quality video stuff next season with other Gold Club members – all free of charge. Again, if these links are shared outside the Gold Club – which will cripple his bandwidth allowances – you will miss out again.
The majority of people on this site are superb. They help others where they can and ask for little in return. I try to bring you as much as I can but it's hard with limited resources. There's only so much I can do on me own. We – you and I – are lucky to have people like Al on board. I know we show appreciation but some people are happy to take, take, take.
If you spot people sharing info from here on other sites, just tip us off. We can try and change the URL's of files etc and we can ban them if we can prove who they are.
This is your site and while I will do whatever I can to make it fun and informative. If you work with myself and people like Al and all the mods etc, we can have an even better place. It's about looking out for each other.
The community spirit here has always been superb. Newcomers come along every day and the majority are fine. Let's make them feel welcome and point them in the right direction if until they find their feet.
If you spot wind-up merchants etc, just tip me off and I'll get rid. Simple.
I really want to see the smug and sarky comments wiped out. Banter's great and we all like a laugh but some people do go a bit O.T.T. at times, albeit usually in the Insider section.
Hand on heart I can honestly say I absolutely love interacting with you all each day of the year. I can make mistakes and be an ar*se but we all have our moments. It would certainly be boring if we all saw eye to eye every day.
Some days I hate the place but most of the time it's a good laugh. Remember that you can always get in touch with me about anything by meailing firstname.lastname@example.org – I'm here to look after you as supporting members (donators) but I'm also your pal.
PS: Now could someone please tell me where my pies have been hidden? I only put them down in the Gold Bar ten minutes ago and now they've fecking gone!
After his BNP sympathising comments of recent weeks the site owner has now remembered that without foreigners he'd have a massive chunk of his income missing. He's now trying to wriggle his way back to them before his reputation of being a hater of foreigners bites him on his oversized butt.
He's also admitting that one of his major selling points of the Gold Club – illegal video content – is in the main provided by others out of the goodness of their hearts. If this is true then he's selling something over which he's not control.
Whoever "Al" is – if you are concerned that your efforts might be spread to too many people then perhaps now is the time to tell Duncan that you're pulling out. We are going to be here as long as Dunk is ripping people off, and we'll be publishing all your information too.
And if "Al" does decide to quit the Koptalk Gold Club, we're pretty certain you'll see the links to the feeds and software all over the internet anyway, just like in previous years. Illegal or not, "Al" isn't the only one who knows about this stuff and takes a risk posting information about it.
