Golden Brown – the new name for (g)old bullshit. This is an example of a Koptalk begging page, from February of last year.

A message from the KopTalk Editor….
KopTalk was originally spawned from a private email list which I ran back in my old newsgroup days. I created the newsgroup uk.sport.football.clubs.liverpool and after that I started this little baby to keep me busy. It’s always been run as a hobby but due to the amount of visitors that started visiting, high hosting costs soon made me realise that I needed help. Initially advertising was very profitable and big companies were desperate to throw money around but when the .com bubble burst, other ways of finding revenue had to be found. That’s why we have subscription services on the site today. Without them I simply wouldn’t be able to afford to run the site. Other sites may not have subscription services but if they received the sort of traffic that we do, they, like us, would have no alternative but to find ways to survive. Every single penny we receive is re-invested back into the site.
The site is run by myself from home with the help of family and friends. Numerous former and present Liverpool FC players have also been very supportive. None of us receive a wage, we’re just here because we’re all Liverpool mad and because we love interacting with other fans from all over the world. We don’t just update the site and chat to people on the forums though. We also help fans with any problems they may have because we’re like that! KopTalk is a very special community because we all support each other.
If you are in a position to make a donation to help me and our team of moderators and other editorial volunteers, please click on the PayPal logo below. If you can’t help, that doesn’t matter, the fact that you are visiting our site is a way of supporting us but just remember to visit our sponsors by clicking on their banner ads.
People often ask if they can make a donation and that’s why this page exists. All I can say if you do make a donation is ‘THANKS’. But more importantly, remember one thing, YOU’LL NEVER WALK ALONE!
If at any time you ever need any kind of help or assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me. See www. koptalk. info for all our contact information.
Obviously we’ve removed the PayPal button. How many contradictions can you spot?
