He's not happy at all with this blog, but now he's accusing some people of being "nasty and abusive". To be honest Dunk, I don't really know what you expect of them. How many times have you said someone deserves to be (insert form of violence here)? You are extremely abusive when someone stands up to your bullying, but can't take it back again.
Apart from that, this blurb from you beats anything you've ever come out with before. It's beyond funny.

I've been coming under heavy attack, criticism etc as a result of HQ staff doing checks on every member to make sure we have their credentials etc on file. (I think you've come under attack for a lot more than that. And "HQ Staff" means your mum and Steve of course.)
Thankfully most people are sound but there are some really nasty and abusive feckers out there. I've instructed Steve not to allow anyone in – even if they offer to pay – if they have been abusive during any contact with us. (Especially those that threaten to contact Trading Standards or PayPal or your hosting companies?)
People can air their concerns or points etc if they are valid but I'm talking about some real nasty stuff. I've been brought up to treat people like they treat you and that's the message I try to get across to young impressionable people like Steve. (Where can people air their concerns? You've closed support tickets without response. You've banned anyone who uses your forum to ask a question. You've removed the PM function from the Insider site. You are not willing to answer people's questions on valid concerns or points. We know Steve is young and impressionable because you control his life. You force him to stay at home all day and night (unless you need pub company) and in return he gets to do all of your work for you. You could just pay him a wage but you refuse. Why?)
Have just found out that a huge contact of mine has just sold his business in Liverpool and moved to Manchester. This came as a bit of a shock as he's very close to the players. Thankfully they are visiting him at his new establishment as normal which has eased the nerves. (Oh dear. Does this mean when we expose your site for having practically no insider info you'll have your excuse ready? Convenient, to say the least.)
This guy doesn't provide much on the transfer front but he gets to see a lot of comings and goings, what the players are getting up to and who they're knocking about with. This enables me to be updated as to what players are drinking excessively or partying when they shouldn't be. It makes me sound like a grass but I like to know who's taking things seriously at the club. It is this information that chief executive Rick Parry is always wanting to speak to me about because he knows such info is hard to get hold of. (We've had this checked. You don't speak to Rick Parry. More bull, like the rest of that paragraph.)
To get in some of the places the players frequent can be difficult but most of the owners are Reds and as fans of KopTalk, I'm lucky to get memberships etc. (Of course.) Although I'm high profile on the web for the right and wrong reasons depending on whether you're a fan of KopTalk or anti-KopTalk, I don't make it known to everyone what my work is when I'm out and about.(Fan? People are fans of LFC, not you. You only go out and about to pubs and social clubs in Wallsend and so I doubt you see much of the LFC lads.) On the web I deliberately created a persona to attract publicity in the early days. (Ah – Del? Mark? Which character?). This character would be in your face, a bit cheeky and controversial etc. Yet offline I'm dead quiet and I prefer to keep myself to myself. (You think that's funny – wait for the next bit!) In fact not many people don't know that my real name isn't actually the one I use on the internet. (Told you it was funny. HIS REAL NAME ISN'T THE ONE HE USES ON THE INTERNET! Course not Mr Oldham. And all those cheques made payable to Duncan Oldham? Threw them away? Conned the bank with some fake id to open an account? Oops. You've cocked up again.) Full info in me book when the time's right… read on. (I bet it's not as good as our book, if we decide to write one on you.)
I have to get the book finished a.s.a.p. It has dragged on for too long now and if it's annoyed you, I can assure you it's annoyed me.
Losing the first version when my laptop exploded didn't help and it set me back in terms of motivation. (What is it with Oldham and his lies? Does he believe them himself? His laptop "exploded" and all of his work was lost. Of course it was. He told us recently that it was finished and he was just sorting out the publishing deal. Now he's not finished it.) My main problem is the lack of time. Ok I could spend a night in and write rather than hitting the pub but if I didn't have some time to myself away from the site and LFC I'd shoot my brains out. (There's that violent imagery again.)
I've always wanted the last chapter to be about finance and the new stadium and how I've been caught up in it so in a way Parry has helped by dragging his heels in. I know my critics say there will be no book but sadly for them there will. (You said you'd finished it. Why do you now need to write the last chapter? We expect a free copy of it when it comes out – for review purposes).
Don't expect a work of art though… I'm no writer as you know but it'll be an honest account of how the site started, progressed etc and how I got too involved with things to do with the club. (So you keep telling us.)
At home I've been having some problems which is why I've been out on the drink a bit recently.(There's a surprise. Mrs O not keen on the old Miss Hargreaves stuff coming out again? You split up with her once, then got back with her. Try some honesty with her. If you are as crap at telling lies to her as you are at telling lies in writing to your site visitors, it's no wonder she's falling out with you. Even your mum must be starting to get sick of defending you now. Steve's unfortunately still too gullible to see what you are doing to him.) And while I'm enjoying the World Cup, I am missing the LFC side of things. Transfer stuff can be exciting but it gets a bit boring day in day out and reporting that a Liverpool player played 62.5 minutes of a World Cup bores me. The best news item I did for a while was the one today when Rafa went on record about Bellamy. Hearing the boss speak was good again… I wonder if any of you felt like that or understand what I mean? (A lot of us feel that way, you'll be surprised how many. It's just a shame your lies and scams have tarnished what could have been a great site, a great product, where we could have all gone to find out about Liverpool. You aren't fit to associate yourself with Liverpool. If you did love the club, you'd finally accept it was time to hang up your keyboard.)
