Shhhh! Don't mention Tom.

If you’ve been a member of Koptalk for any length of time, perhaps even as little as a month or so, you might have happened across rumours about members leaving. Suspiciously. Then Duncan, or one of his moderators, will pop up and you’ll see that it was all the member’s fault. They were misbehaving. The other one, if it’s a respected poster, is Duncan saying, “oh he’s not banned, I just want him to clarify something and I’ve emailed him about it.”

Read on.

Tom’s version: Posted objective criticism about the site and was banned with only a single e-mail sent to him with no mention of a ban, but gets a message saying banned if trying to access forum.

Dunk’s verison: His thread was removed because feedback should be sent by e-mail, he is not banned and he has sent him several e-mails without response.

That’s the situation to my knowledge anyway.

:canofworms:

If he’s seeing a banned message he’s not banned, that’s just the forum software standard template, if he was banned he wouldn’t be able to get to that point at all. He can’t be confused about that as I emailed him.

All he needed to do was email in so I could explain to him why his post was pulled. If he can’t be bothered to do that, that’s up to him. I didn’t pull it and leave the situation. I emailed him before people started throwing their toys around. I only emailed him coz he’s a sound bloke hence the reason I made him a Honorary Member.

I did my bit, he’s moved on, the matter’s closed.
————————————-      

Duncan, as Tom pointed out in his email to me, YOU DIDN’T EMAIL HIM. Apart from “Please keep feedback off the forums” or some such nonsense.

You continue to lie, and more and more of your members are becoming former members as they find out.

  1. Phil T Says:

    Tom?

    Who’s Tom? 😉 :p

  2. Redz Says:

    Sorry to side track but did fatty ring the suits up over my email?
    PS never never get rid of your most popular members it pisses people off Dunk Or katie.

  3. Fred Says:

    Redz – I had a sneaking suspicion that your reply from Ian Cotton was a fake. I contacted the club a couple of days ago and received an official response from them today confirming that it was genuine. Sorry for doubting you!

  4. punt Says:

    Fred, may I ask you why you held those doubts

    it has sadly got to the point where LFC have to officially refute this mans (many wild) claims and I doubt it will be the last time either

  5. Sinon Says:

    Fred, can you post it? Either here or on est1892? Blanking out all contact details of yourself and Ian, there are so many peopke who keep putting their head in the sand…but Dunk just has to say “I spoke to Ian…” and the cult believe.

  6. Disco Says:

    punt, the reply wasn’t fake, the questions were unfortunately bollocks! Shame really.

  7. rupertinsider Says:

    Disco: as usual you are in damage limitation mode for yourself and Oldham.

    You, Redz and many others were taken in by Oldham’s lies about his non-existant relations with LFC and especially with Rick Parry. On the basis of those lies you all paid Oldham money.

    Redz was smart enough to read the signs provided on here and eventually check the story by writing to LFC. His letter evinced a response from Ian Cotton, Head of Press.

    So far Redz has had more genuine communication with LFC than Oldham has ever had in his entire career as an Insider.

    The Ian Cotton reply proved that Oldham was a liar about his relations with the club and especially with Rick Parry and about Crouch’s alleged exclusive interview with the S**

    After Redz exposure, Oldham attempted to cover up. He claimed he called Cotton about the letter and put him right about Redz.

    No he didn’t.

    He also implied that Cotton was mislead or confused by Redz questions.

    No he wasn’t.

  8. univofchicago Says:

    as there been even a DAY when hes not lied?

    im not kidding. not even a DAY?

  9. Tom Says:

    “If he’s seeing a banned message he’s not banned, ”

    this is superb 1984 Duncan “double-speak”.

    What utter b*llocks. Mr Creosote has made absolutely no attempt to contact me. I have had an increase in spam. I’m pretty sure he’s flogged my details off.

  10. Ron Nasty Says:

    I hadn’t visited KT in 6 months or so but signed up to the free one to keep an eye after this blog started and I am now getting 40-50 emails about viagra every day. Not that I need it………

  11. The Platinum Club Says:

    Dunk needs to stop talking techno babble. He gets his terms confused and considering that most people who use the internet are fairly computer literate, he’s just going to show himself up.

  12. barry wom Says:

    Disco, you seem to be the type of bloke who would be useful to go over the top with. Your loyalty to your leader is incredible. However, this is not WWI and the battle of the Somme. You can think for yourself. To claim there was a problem with Ian Cottons mail is incredible. Dunk claimed he would have official access at press conferences. Has he? Well I’ll save you the answer, no – because dunk has admitted that himself, just he now tries to wriggle out of it saying of course it wasn’t an official KT presence. He’s a lying, two faced, backstabbing sun supporting prick and I’m amazed anyone would want to give the man loyalty. I know what I’d like to give him and loyalty it ain’t. I can’t wait till he shits on you, because that’s the only thing that will open your eyes.

    FWIW, about him sending SPAM mails. I opened an account on the free KT to try it out. It was a brand new account. It has never been used for anything else. I registered with KT and I now get around 6-10 “vigagra” and “make my dick bigger” emails every day. following on from ron nasty’s comments and being a fellow rutle, i also do not require either 🙂

  13. Disco Says:

    Morning chaps, it’s all to easy to dismiss me as a Dunk supporter but you couldn’t be further from the truth.

    I analyse things as I see it (and some things on this site are interesting), but too many blogs (usually Rupert’s) are just silly. You guys never comment on bits that I agree with, but go back behind your trenches when I point out a flaw.

    Even insiderinsider could see that redz’ e-mail was flawed. How can you possibly get excited about Cotton’s reply (other than you got one) when he’s replying to something so obviously warped? Read it again – when has Dunk ever claimed that Parry was organising all those things for Koptalk LMAO 🙂

  14. univofchicago Says:

    thanks ron nasty, ive just checked my email registered to koptalk (i dont check the email btw…just use it for registration purposes to hedge against spam-risk sites like koptalk). checked it to see if i get those myself….and oh my god…i get them too…

  15. chapeau du soleil Says:

    Hmm “make your dick bigger”?, think I will sign up to KT! Thanks Dunk, my missus will love you. Oh, but no you can’t video us

    Hey Barry, do you realise that if we sign Dirk Kuijt, the club have covered the first name of every “proper” Rutle?

  16. Disco Says:

    Barry – PS I’ve already expressed my view that banning Tom was fucking retarded. I enjoy the website (shock horror), but yes there are things that I’m not happy with.
    Very few of them have anything to do with this website!

  17. barry wom Says:

    Mr Sun Hat – that would be just perfect. We should scapr YNWA and replace it with Cheese and Onions. I can feel the passion I could put into that song on the Kop.

    Disco – But what have you done on KT about Tom’s banning?

  18. Ron Nasty Says:

    Bring back Stig! Dirk’s a backstabbing Beatle wannabe.

    Disco, you think your posts are a reasonable analysis of the truth as you see it. However, to the person who has come to the conclusion, through their own reasoned analysis, that Dunk is a lying toerag, you come across as a person who has yet to see properly without their Fat-coloured spectacles. In all honesty I’m bewildered at your dismissal of Cottons’ reply, yet accept that Oldham’s announcements are not, let’s be kind, economical with the truth.

    You can bang on about discrepencies in this blog, and there are bound to be some, but you feel little ill will to and keep supporting a site that charges users for a service it just doesn’t supply.

    As someone else said, it’s going to take you being fucked over before you realise what’s going on.

  19. Disco Says:

    Well nothing, what can I do? I don’t see the point of throwing all my toys out the pram, but it might become a factor when I next renew.

  20. Disco Says:

    Ron – I’m happy with the community and the information I get (even if most of it can be found elsewhere for free). It is a little strained over there at the moment, probably due to this site!

    If anything major happened, I’d just leave. I wouldn’t see a need of whinging all over the internet. (but fair play to you if that’s what you want to do)

  21. Toby Says:

    Disco: What is your definition of the term ‘official representation’?

  22. Disco Says:

    That he has a contact who goes to these things.

    I originally thought there’s no way that anyone could be confused and actually think that LFC would invite a fansite to these things, but fair play some guy on Koptalk did think this 🙂

  23. trickyd Says:

    Disco:

    Do you think that Oldham’s claim that he has insider knowledge of Liverpool’s transfer dealings is true or false?

  24. Disco Says:

    I think he has contacts of variable reliability and he posts what he says in good faith.

    I’ve not seen concrete evidence that he makes stuff up. I believe it’s possible though.

  25. fat_boy_fat Says:

    Disco – Dont you see that he ues his words very carefully so people can be confused or misled.
    If no-one had picked up on his false ‘offical presence’ claim then you can bet he would have been telling us he really did have someone FROM KT at the conference.

    But being the con man he is, he intentionally gives himself an escape clause incase he found out.
    You always have to read between the lines and ask yourself WHY is he being so vauge with what he is telling me.

  26. Disco Says:

    Fair enough, if that’s what you think.

    Shame we won’t find this out.

  27. Sinon Says:

    Disco – what ‘exlusive’ has Dunk ever got right? Remember that ‘exclusive’ means original, i.e. not robbed…

  28. chapeau du soleil Says:

    His info is about as specific as a horoscope. Perhaps he is Russell Grant?

  29. Ron Nasty Says:

    So Disco, you don’t like whinging over the internet, yet you come here whinging about our posts! Now you’ll say you’re not whinging but we are.

  30. Disco Says:

    Ron – no whinging’s fine. It’s theraputic and passes the time at work! I just said I wouldn’t be whinging about Koptalk if I decided not to renew.

  31. rupertinsider Says:

    Disco – “I wouldn’t see a need of whinging all over the internet.”

    If you did you would look sillier than your already do.

    Take a step back and look at what you are saying.

    You have read an official letter from LFC to the effect that Oldham is a liar, that he has no official contact with LFC or its employees and that his statement about a Crouch interview with the S** is also a lie.

    To justify your investment in those lies you want to quibble about the precise format of the questions LFC was replying to.

    As a matter of fact the truth is even starker than Cotton’s letter. Oldham has been on the net for about 8-9 years selling the lie that he is in virtually daily contact with LFC and for most of that time he has charged for the information he says he gets from that contact.

    Oldham has NEVER met officials at LFC and NEVER had communication with ANY of them.

  32. Disco Says:

    Sinon – I can’t answer that. For that I’d need to be sure that either he was the first person to call it, or failing that found something out independently of someone else who called it.

    As I don’t go on any other forums that regularly I just don’t have the information to be sure.

    He’s obviously posted some info about this transfer window – I’ll wait and see how he does I guess!

  33. Disco Says:

    Rupert – no, I read a letter which was a reply to a ridiculous e-mail.

    It funnily enough confirmed what I already knew!

    As other people have commented, I think this site needs better vetting of it’s claims/stories. It’s made me think about a few things, but it’s too silly overall.

  34. rupertinsider Says:

    For anyone reading this – we know from independent sources that the letter was an accurate expression of LFC’s position. Oldham, in any of his many manifestations, has no access to any official press conference or to any official at LFC and his story that Crouch did an interview with the S** is a lie.

    The letter is an understatement of the full position. Oldham has no access to any official event at LFC and never has.

    Trust your club, not Oldham or his barrack room lawyers on the internet.
