Desperate times at Koptalk HQ.

Dunk wrote the following request today. He’s pleading for help. In so many ways. And he’s still not in the North West. I wonder how Jeano’s settling in on her first day – the promised Koptalk webcam and staff mugshots should be up very soon…

Post: Would you like to be a moderator?        (Topic#17550)

Loc: KOPTALK 10-07-06 02:45 PM – Post#260670

We’re looking for moderators that are online during the nights when the rest of the UK is asleep, different time zones etc.

If you would like to put yourself forward for this, please email

To be considered you must be a well know poster who has used these forums for some time. Your participation on other forums isn’t a problem, however there’s no point putting forward yourself if you aren’t on here much.

If you class yourself as a prolific member and you like our community and want to make it better, please get in touch.

I will then discuss the names suggested with the other mods.

Rewards may include a free life-time Gold Club sub and an annual Christmas card from KTHQ

How could you turn that down
Jealousy is the tribute mediocrity pays to genius…

Just before we posted this we had a browse through the blog’s comments. Look what we found –

Rashid. Glad he’s getting his commupance, I used to be a regular on there as some of you probably know but fucked it off despite his desperate plea’s to get me back. He’s offered me free Gold Club membership and mod duties to get me back. How sad is he? 

Not sure if this is “the” Rashid, as seen on many LFC forums over the years, but I’ve no reason to believe otherwise. If it is you though, thanks for the info Rash.

    HAs anyone been in the executive lounge2 and chill out room today?

    There is a long thread in each from the ‘lurkers’. They are biting back at fatboys rules, the one about having to post or you lose your membership name.
    Most of them are suggesting they will leave KT if they have to post, and even regualrs like TOM are kicking off about it.
    Dunk pops up in the chill out room thread saying that they should try and post once a month.
    He is losing members hand over fist, and pulls this stunt to cost himself more members.
    Its great! More fun watching this develop than watching Jose getting rattled by Rafa

    I think it is Rashid. Only inconsistency is that Rashid claimed recently on TLW that he still communicates with Fatso on MSN chat. Fatso said the same thing in a recent post in which he was dissing Rashid.

    Anyway, I already responded to Rashid on another thread so I’ll repost it here:

    Why don’t you tell us some of his dirty secrets? You were his most active contributor and loyalist moderator – you actually appointed DJ and some of the other mods. You stood by him when most of the 200-2002 generation left his site. You defended him on other sites. You took a lot of shit for it. Now he always refers to you in disparaging terms – I’ve seen two such references in the last three weeks.

    I remember you were one of the first to have the guts to come on the old site and give your reaction to the criticism of him. Bascially you said that if he was guilty of some of the practices we accused you did not condone it. But as far as you know he and his site was genuine and as long as you believed that you would stick with it to talk about football. I then saw you defend his site and adopt the rule that anyone who criticised it from within should be banned.

    In my view your position was principled if wrong. He was guilty. He was lucky to have you during that period.

    If you can help out with the history with ojr project and want to do it privately you could write to Insider or to me or to Right Insider. I’ll give you the emails addys in the next post.

    But it would also be useful if you could make a few public posts, too, and pass the word.

    Insider – do you know that Koptalk-Insider is the third in WordPress “hot blogs” today. They have 250,000 blogs.

  4. tj Says:

    let us know on here if rashid responds please rupert.

    cheers mate

  5. rupertinsider Says:

    tj – if Rashid or anyone wants to send in a confidential email it won’t ever be disclosed. But Rashid should post something publicly.

    Ahhhh the KopTalk christmas card….

    Did anybody ever receive the birthday card promised on sign up? Not me.
    Anybody ever manage to get tickets?

    Competitions every month!!! Guess the result for Liverpool versus some shit team we’re likely to steam roller, then wait a few weeks for the next shit team for the next entry.

    Not to mention the SMS. I’d have read about it earlier on SkySports. My work colleagues cottoned on and would ask me if Liverpool had just signed Dalglish when my phone went off.

    The amount of times i was telling people ‘inside’ info, only to end up looking like a complete tw*t

  8. chapeau du soleil Says:

    lol @ Adam, that’s about right!

  9. rupertinsider Says:

    You don’t get a Xmas card unless you sent back last year’s before 12th January.
