The clique are banished, so who's left?

Our story this morning about the now former member of Koptalk, “cricket69”, was accompanied by a lot of emails and also some blog comments from Aussie Reds, no doubt finding our blog after reading Cricket’s email to them.

Bad news travels fast, and so does bad publicity. Dunk claims to love bad publicity – but he then makes sure his mods are trained to hide it as soon as it arrives back to his site. “jackchanges” probably hasn’t read the blog in any detail, but he knows about it. He’s found us on Google by doing a search for www koptalk.

Dunks fully aware of this mate. Thanks!

Good old Rich Tea – still sticking up for Dunk despite the evidence. I bet Dunk wasn’t fully aware of our placing in the search engines though! Come on Rich Tea, open your eyes to this. Is it worth the hassle?

A blog reader left a comment earlier today including a link to a database of email addresses he’d got hold of a while back from Koptalk Insider.  All of these were freely available from Koptalk at the time, you didn’t need to be logged in to get them, you didn’t need to be a member. Now Dunk’s taken the option away, but all of the available email addresses were already captured.

It looks like someone’s already started to make use of it. And it’s got back to Dunk’s favourite biscuit too –

There’s a number of sites spamming people for anti-koptalk sites. Dunk is fully aware of these. If you have a problem with koptalk or Dunk I’m sure Dunk will be happy to try to resolve it via email (editor@koptalk.com) or as he’s said before you can arrange to visit koptalk HQ. It’s not really a secret underground bunker!

makes a change from spam offering to enlarge your bits, most people take it with a pinch of salt, the site seems to be getting more succesful, bound to attract more hostility from some….

Thanks for that. It’s funny because we’ve had our best summer ever and we’re really taking things a bit more seriously these days. We’ve spent a fortune on the office and kitting it out etc to try and make things a bit better for you guys. Plus we’ve really tried to improve the support side of things. It wasn’t neglected before but we were struggling and we had to accept we needed more help.

We try our best and we’ll continue to do so. We can’t please everyone. The only people that ever tend to complain are those who we have to have a word with about their attitude towards other members. Only our rivals and rejects sulk about us.

If people are unsatisfied, they should drop us a line or make a call (we can call them back) and we can either try and improve on what they say or we can offer them the opportunity not to return.

We have had to break a clique up over the summer who were spoiling things for the majority, especially newcomers etc. We will continue culling people that are offensive to other members.

Quality not quantity is paramount.

We have simple rules and we just ask that everyone shows respect to others. If you want to fight and be stupid, there are plenty of other forums out there that will cater for you.

The only people we’re bothered about are our genuine members

It’s great when Dunk has one of his rants isn’t it? Now he’s claiming that the biggest part of his “community” were a “clique”. Usually a “clique” in a forum consists of at most half-a-dozen members. That’s my usual take on these things. This summer Dunk has lost a massive amount of visitors, in different stages, but as a result of how “blog-down” broke the spirit of the site. How many users left? How many well-liked users left? Were they all a “clique”?

Instead of lying to his remaining members and to himself, Dunk needs to consider why so many left. This is, from all accounts, a bigger exodus than he’s had before. It won’t stop by trying to hide it from the remaining members. The season starts properly tomorrow, and people start meeting old faces they’ve not seen for a while. Transfer rumours will inevitably be brought up, and there’s a few people who’ll mention how it turned out that Insider site was actually a load of crap after all.

And Dunk, we all know you read this, remember when you used to try and do “riddles” as transfer rumours? Then you’d retrofit them to the facts later? Well we’ve got a small riddle for you.

Address this question – why was the Swan feeling so Cross?

  4. chapeau du soleil Says:

    because he’d just paid £30 to a fat liar in return for lots of second-hand stories and even more made up bullshit?

  5. Ron Nasty Says:

    Read it as David Brent….

  6. Taxman Says:

    I reckon it’s because the Swan fell off the Wall.

    End.

    “we’ve had out best summer ever”

    hahaha…what a lie…

    shades of richard nixon really…continues to lie when the evidence is clearly stacked against him…

  8. Toby Says:

    Whatever happened to the Cropper reference?

  9. Tsk Says:

    So they claim if you aren’t happy with the service you can contact them with your thoughts.

    Then?

    Then they will lock you out with and you will not recieve a penny back.

    Dunk claims that he will continue culling people for being offensive to other members, is that why I was banned for simply registering to another Liverpool site?

    Lies, Duncan, big FAT lies.

  10. rupertinsider Says:

    More on the user count at KT.
    ____________________________
    # There are 60 Registered and 6 Anonymous Users online now.
    # Max Users Ever Online: 153
    _____________________________________________
    That was at 3.27 am. That would be prime time in the evening in the Americas, and busy morning time in Asia and Australia. So its a measure of his overseas visitors.

    The Max Users Ever Online must be at this time – because it changes from day to day and seems far too low for an overall total.

  11. Chunky Says:

    Nice one, koptalk-insider now higher up the google rankings than Dunks .org site.

  12. Sinon Says:

    Univofchicago – he’s definately looking like a politician, wriggling and wriggling but unable to get away.

    “I never had sexual relations with that woman”

    *woman shows spunk stains on her dress matching his dna*

    “bugger…..”

  13. slightly disappointed Says:

    Just checked the number of users on the varias fora. At 10:30am this morning the following number of users were online:

    kt insider/gold club – 287
    ynwa – 262
    rawk – 264
    tlw – 63
    est1892 – 49

    Nothing much between the top three. Est 1892 had a lot of guests, but I only counted users (including those listed as hidden on rawk)

  14. Chunka Says:

    A lot of them will be the same people opening different websites.

  15. silentbutdeadly Says:

    might be to do it in the evening/weekend when people aren’t at work.

  16. An Observer Says:

    In terms of numbers of users online, you can’t really make a valid comparision between sites that allow guests to view their forums and those that dont since it stands to reason that if a site with lots of guests online forced guests to login before viewing anything, then the number of users online would go up.

  17. An Observer Says:

    Oh and you have to take into account the time period too, Duncan doesn’t disclose what time period his is over, RAWK & YNWA are 30 mins, TLW I’m not sure about put maybe the vB default of 15 mins and Est1892 is 15 mins.

  18. DAVE the BRAVE Says:

    I’ve been reading this website for a few days and I have to say it’s fascinating. I’m not a KT subscriber. In fact, when the fat twat decided to charge just to access his standard news page I thought “this guy is a twat. How can he justify charging people for information that’s already in the public domain?”. I was, however, intriuged by the Insider and genuinely thought that there were stories there that were not in the public realm. Obviously that’s not the case and I’m glad I trusted my instincts about the fat twat.

    Now I know the truth I wish I could do more to help bring the con-merchant to his knees. I hope Insider Insider and rupert are keeping a dossier of evidence that can be used to get KT offline and protect the innocent from these scams. Is there an investigative journalist or lawyer in our ranks who would be will to take this further?

    By the way, I noticed today that there are no news stories linking to KT on the NewsNow page. Is that just a coincidence or has something happened?

    Keep up the good work everyone!

    is that where he lives?

    Oi – where’s RAOTL on that list?

  21. An Observer Says:

    If you include RAOTL, you will need to take into account that phpBB’s default whos online period is 5 mins unless they have altered it.

  22. shocking Says:

    because he is on the cross roads

  23. Pete Says:

    For F sake how are you not ashamed of yourself. Do you not have better things to do than take the piss out off a generally good website. You seem to have some stupid Vendetta against Duncan and his family. So what if its most of his family that helps out with the site, so what if all the RUMOURS on the site dont come to anything. For god sake if you dont like the site then dont visit it. I really just dont get people like you and genuenly feel sorry for you.

  24. Insider Insider Says:

    Hi Pete,

    It’s not just the RUMOURS (which he claims are facts anyway). How about the other things we talk about on this blog.

    If you aren’t Dunk / Steve or one of the other family members then take some time to read a bit more of the blog. Email me if you prefer – koptalk.insider at gmail.com – and I’ll have a chat with you.

    I’m assuming you’re a Liverpool fan, and if so I’d appreciate you explaining why you are supportive of Dunk, AFTER you’ve read a bit more of the blog – with an open mind. Try the “READ ME” section from the top, it’s still in work (slowly) but it’s a good place to start.
