What rhymes with "Kuyt" but starts with "Bull-"?

So, after waiting 12 months or more, Rafael Benítez has finally got his man – Dirk Kuyt is a Red. (I am going along with the idea his name is pronounced “Kite” by the way, not “Koit” or “Koat”, for the sake of the post’s title!) Or at least he will be today when the formalities are completed. He could even be in the squad for tomorrow’s game against Sheffield United.

Koptalk, with its claims of all kinds of insider contacts, didn’t know any more than anybody else. They followed the news like the rest of us – reading the Echo website, reading the official website, looking out for information from other (not Koptalk) websites to see if they knew anything.

Dunk knew nothing. And we’ve been able to prove this time and again. The lack of insider knowledge within Koptalk is just one reason not to buy a subscription to the site. One of many. He has no contacts.

Someone reminded him about his gateman. He didn’t respond. (Last month he’d claimed he’d bribed a gateman to provide him with news on comings and goings at Melwood. He hadn’t, he’s a liar.)  The reminder of the gateman lie came on Wednesday when it had been reported everywhere that Liverpool were pulling out all the stops possible to give Kuyt his move to Anfield, and when it had been reported Feyenoord had already allowed Kuyt to chat to the club about his possible move.

100% for him signing

We’re still waiting for your gateman to feed us with info.

How about some photos Dunk – from Chris Waddle’s house perhaps? This was at lunchtime yesterday. (Dunk claimed last month that he was considering making an offer on Chris Waddle’s home outside Liverpool’s training ground.)

Can anybody near Melwood get any pictures?

Not Dunk, obviously. He’s not even near the training ground. What about his Koptalk photographer? He never had one really. And he’s gone back to using stolen photos on his website again as you’ll have spotted.
All this money for the insider site yet not a bit of advanced information. Until, wait, some news on the medical…

He’s passed the medical according to Dave Usher on TLW.

Oh, I see. It is “insider” information, from someone with a contact or two at the club, but it’s not from Koptalk, it’s from another website. We found that thread on the TLW website, didn’t cost us a bean – http://forum.liverpoolway.co.uk/showthread.php?t=36105

Still, at least Dunk’s mum has been trying to cheer Dunk up. She’s just remembered he doesn’t support Leeds any more, like he did as a kid…

My mum turned round today and said, “Son, I think Liverpool will win the league this season”. That’s the first time she’s ever said that since I’ve known her

So there you are then. Exclusive. Dunk’s mum thinks LFC will win the league. That’s the only contacts Dunk has. His family. Who all live between Scarborough and Newcastle.

Koptalk is dropping off in member numbers. Dropping off in moderator numbers too as former moderators start to see how they are assisting the dodgy Del Johnson. A member wanted to know if he could discuss the missing members. Or would the dictatorship prevent such crimes and criminals even being mentioned. Can you guess what the answer was?

#1608574 – Thu Aug 17 2006 02:21 PM  Thx for the “Gold Club Etiquette”. Nice to see you address some of the issues that has been a priority this summer. Seeing that I was on vacation in July, I’m still trying to figure out what the hell happend and where so many of the oldtimers are.

So here is my question:

Are we allowed to talk about former members of this institution and what happend over the summer, or is that a strict “no go”?

I hope the question is in order!

It’s not right to talk about anyone who isn’t here. We had been receiving complaints for some time that some members, particular Honorary Members, were getting out of hand. A handful of friends didn’t it when we took action and they opted to leave. No drama at this side of the fence, it happens. I’ve seen it before on the main site and we’ll see it again. People get close which is great but when the majority suffer, we have to break up cliques that flout the rules that exist for the benefit of everyone. It wasn’t popular with a few people but the feedback I have received is that things have greatly improved. That’s about it really. Despite the claims, I don’t think anyone was banned. If they were, it would be a couple at max. People ban themselves, we don’t ban them. Life goes on

“Despite the claims, I don’t think anyone was banned.”  Hmmm. As far as I’m concerned, you are either allowed to join in or you aren’t. If Dunk has taken steps to stop you from joining in then you are no longer allowed to join in, and so are banned. It doesn’t matter how you dress it up – “locked out awaiting the provision of details” or  “honorary membership taken away” – a ban is a ban. Any reputable site would have a way of allowing anyone treated in this way to complain to management – but that’s the dictator himself at Koptalk, so fat chance.

Dunk has taken one step towards allowing people to leave support questions on his forum. He’s allowed them to leave them secretly. As he says in his signature – “Need support? Please post a message in the ‘Member Support’ forum. Only KopTalk will see your message.”

That’s good in a way, some support questions I agree need to be confidential. It turns out though it will only be the ones that Dunk decides to make confidential that will remain that way. Red Del was one who asked a question. Dunk answered his question without showing the original question to other members. Another example of censorship, and surely if Del should be entitled to have either his original question quoted or to have his name ommitted from the answer. (And yes, this is the same Red Del with the video clips. He’s changed his password and we’ve decided not to publish the new one yet. As long as he doesn’t add any more clips for Dunk to use to sell his site I’m prepared to call a “truce” on the clips.) He was asking why threads get deleted. We all know why – because they show Dunk up to be a lying dictator. Red Del wanted to know what Dunk’s answer would be –

Thanks for the questions about why mods delete threads and don’t leave reasons.

At KopTalk we have MASSIVE communities. We have the Insider forums, the Gold Club forums and the main site forums @ koptalk.orful/forums

It is impossible to post reasons behind why a thread was moved, deleted or edited. If we were to do that all day we’d never get any real work done. That is a simple fact. It’s just not possible.

Nobody gets a thread removed for the fun of it. Providing threads stay within the Acceptable Use Policy they don’t get pulled.

If people educated themselves by taking a few moments of their time reading the AUP, then they would understand.

None of us enjoy modding the forums but it has to be done. If we make a decision, follow it through and then explain it, we’d be there all day.

For example, if two people are exchanging blows on a thread it is better to delete it. Lock it and they start another. Start another and they are asked to cut it out. Keep posting new threads to continue their row and we just keep deleting.

If we were to create a post explaining why we removed their row, others who missed it then want to know what was in it so even more threads start and more people start fighting.

This is just one example. Nip it in the bud and 9 times out of 10, people leave it. I’ve been moderating forums for more than 10 years now and I have enough experience to know how to do moderate them for the benefit of the entire community and the people who moderate them.

Sometimes it is hard for forum members to really understand how hard it is for moderators to try and keep everyone happy. But at the end of the day it’s not personal because if it was personal the offending person(s) wouldn’t be here.

I hope that helps a little

This is the AUP which will soon be updated for the next season:

http://www.koptalk.disinfo/acceptableusepolicy.shtml

Need support? Please post a message in the ‘Member Support’ forum. Only KopTalk will see your message.

So it’s diffcult to leave a line saying, “Thread Deleted – Reason: Abuse of fellow member” is it? I know and he knows, we all know, it’s a piece of piss to be transparent about these things. Unless you’ve something to hide.

Like Milkman’s thread listing all the predictions made by Insider members about transfers. Dunk got all his wrong, so did his aliases. Guess what happened to that thread within minutes of it being bumped to the top. You can find the list on this blog, and someone also posted it on www.est1892.co.uk.  So Dunk’s attempts to try and hide more proof of him being a bullshitter failed. Again.

Sometimes it’s hard to tell nowadays whether questions asked on Koptalk forums are asked genuinely by members unaware of the truth about Dunk, or if they are sarcasm. In some cases I already know because I’ve already been in touch with the poster, but not always. Take this one next, I’ve no idea if “Chewbacca” knows about Dunk’s upthetoon.coN site, but it sounds like he could…

Says Dunk who’s probably been there all afternoon pretending to be “Barry”. Not on his own Toon forum though – that disappeared a while ago and won’t return because he might have to pay a licence fee for it, and he doesn’t want to do that.

Gold Club Etiquette
#1608516 – Thu Aug 17 2006 01:50 PM
Over the summer we have shown that no matter who you are, the majority of the members must always come first. This season we will be very strict on the conduct of anyone posting in the Gold Club sections, not because we’re killjoys, but because we want to keep things sensible.

Contrary to popular belief on other Liverpool fans sites, money isn’t everything. Quality is more important than quantity. We will not just accept anyone as a member and those who we feel are not respectful to their other members, will not be invited to renew their subs. We want to make this a place for mature discussions only.

We really want to promote and provide a mature and sensible area for Liverpool fans on the net. Some of our members here are in their 60’s and 70’s, some are under 16. We also have members from all walks of life and backgrounds. Because of this we need to ensure that we’re providing an environment suitable to all.

Over the summer we clamped down and we know this wasn’t popular but this zero tolerance will continue for the benefit of everyone. If you want a free reign, then this isn’t the place to be.

Football is a passionate support so we like to think that we understand from time to time that some people fly off the handle. People don’t get banned for anything like that, they only ban themselves if they continue to be abusive or ignore our polite requests to tame things down. The majority usually apologise (not that we want apologies) and by the time the next topic comes around again, people who were beating each other up with their handbags are friends again. That’s what it’s all about, right?!

We, more than anyone, love a laugh and a bit of banter, so nobody could ever say we’re politically correct or too sensible. The day we have to go all serious is the day we pack it in. But there’s a time and a place.

Please, please, please try and keep the Gold Club areas sensible. Let’s see plenty of on topical indepth discussions, less duplicate posts and no foul or abusive language.

The Insider sections are a bit more laid back but still, we don’t want the Zoo to be run by the animals

Under every post is a report icon image, it looks like this:

If you see offensive posts or something you want to notify us about, just click on that image. We won’t respond to you but we will look at the post(s) you have brought to our attention.

These communities are moderated 24 hours-a-day. We now have a KOPTALK member of staff browsing the forums 24/7 and there are moderators who also help us out. Moderators are fellow members like yourself and if anyone is abusive to them you will be ejected by the stewards

We really want the place to be buzzing and fun but we just want everyone to think about the bigger picture i.e. the whole community.

Another request is that you refrain from typing in ‘SMS style ling’. We have a handful of blind members who use word recognition software to read the forums.

We absolutely hate having to moderate the forums but it has to be done. We moderate the forums as we do for YOU. Foul and abusive language doesn’t offend us but it might offend someone else, someone at work or someone who logs on in the company of their children for example.

I would also like to be kept informed of any ads on the site (Insider section for example) that you feel are inappropriate. 99.9% of all ads displayed are provided by the ad agency and we don’t see them until they appear. Some ads we don’t see at all because we may be in a different country to you. But we can filter out specific ads if you give us feedback via the appropriate channels i.e. a support ticket, a call, MSN to Steve (support@koptalk.com) or a post in the support forum on this site.

The new support forum enables you to post a message privately in it for our attention so if you want to submit notes to us, you can do so that way if you don’t want to submit a support ticket.

This season we will introduce a freephone 0800 telephone number for Gold Club members. This means you will be able to call us for support completely free of charge.

When it comes to support, we prefer to speak to you personally. This is the best way to resolve any issues with passwords etc. We will call you wherever you live in the world. It’s never a problem, you only need to ask.

Please enjoy your time on the site and if you ever need assistance, never hesitate to contact us.

Now go and get some money on Liverpool to win the Premier League!

Etiquette? Rant more like. And as for this 0800 number, I somehow doubt this will be brought in. And if it is, well you’ll know what it is from us here.

And maybe we’ll be able to pass the number on to any authorities looking at Dunk. I need to go and find the email I got from someone explaining the rules on competitions, but there’s a good reason why big companies put the words, “No purchase necessary” into their competition entry rules. Unless I’m mistaken, Dunk’s breaking the law by not making the offer open to all. And the earlier competition he’s referring to was the World Cup one. He’s so amateur and lacking in organisation that he forgot to carry the competition on. Until one of his members reminded him…

NEXT COMPETITION!
#1607197 – Wed Aug 16 2006 08:17 PM
Right.. the XBOX 360 comp is still running so make sure you’ve entered (for Sheffield Utd) if you’re still elible (if you progressed from the last round)!

Our next competition which will run alongside the XBOX 360, will start on 26th August (LFC v West Ham).

The prize on offer will be a multi-satellite receiver which can receive thousands of channels and feeds. You can connect this to a fixed dish or a motorised dish. The prize consists of the receiver, you will need the other kit i.e. dish, cable and any CAMs/cards (for subscription channels).

Members from the UK or overseas can enter but you must be a Gold Club member.

Finally, just a chance to read some complete bullshit from Oldham as a member asks the innocent question. “p7chu”, may know about the blog and all the reasons why so many left to join other sites, he may not. As I say above, it’s hard to tell nowadays. And if I’m finding it hard to tell, imagine how difficult it is for the Fat Controller. But the member asks a valid question – if Dunk has the contacts he claims to have, why did he fail to call the transfer before the nationals?

Surely “have faith” and “wait and see” haven’t become insider stories have they? This isn’t some revolt it’s just a disappoint that I could’ve have had a ‘confirmed’ insider story to tell the Georgie eeedyut in my office before he read the news on the mainstream websites.

You disagree? Did i miss a hot insider story on Kuyt that wasn’t just hope and speculation (which we all had)?

Lecter has been banging on about that Kuyt will a Liverpool player soon and he has been repeating himself time after time to various posters. I think Dunk/PI2/Wallet have also been spraying and spouting info and stuff on this one, sorry but I was “vaguely” aware of this one and it was no shock when it happened.

There is no such thing as ‘guaranteed’ insider information. The guys on here who get such information pass it on based on what their sources say but none of them are going to say that it is definately going to happen because if anything happens to delay or prevent the transfer they would get slated in here.
I have been looking for an announcement on Kuyt this week as result of what the insiders have been saying and would congratulate them for being right !

You were doing so well until you turned abusive. We won’t tolerate abuse on these forums. If you’d have asked Rafa yesterday if we were signing Dirk Kuyt he would have told you the same as people here. He didn’t know himself but there were strong indications from respectable members here along the way. Nobody in the media had even touched on Kuyt until our initial reports that we were in for him first surfaced. Your opinions are welcome but your attitude towards other members isn’t, whether they agree with you or not.

I’ll just return to reading what others write rather than contributing in future.

Yeah I over indulged in encouraging Vishy to quote me correctly if he insists on quoting me at all but you can’t tell me that was abusive surely?

Here’s what Wallet reported 3rd August – it was good enough for me!!

“Hello

I’ve just received a call to say that an improved offer for Dirk Kuyt has been approved by our Board. It is a player plus cash offer, suspected to involve Jerzy Dudek and is worth approximately £9.4m all up. It is anticipated that this will test the resolve of Feyenord with Kuyt anxious to move to Anfield. The bid will be made after tomorrows match.”

Admittedly Feynoord did not want Jerzy, but the fee seems to tie in with what Wallet reported.

As a side note I don’t understand your intervention in this thread when I see true abuse in many other threads?

I can only review posts I’m told to look at.

So when you read mine after presumably being told/asked to you thought asking someone to take their foot out of their mouth was abusive enough to warrant your comment? Dude I ain’t looking for no fight and I love the site, but please… i see abuse, language, and bad beat downs on here every day. I’m sure Vishy is more than capable of holding his own against my tame comment.

Anyway enough from me. But as I said all along if i missed it fair enough and on this occassion i stood corrected and had my hands up (in another post with someone called Wallet) and THEN you choose to repremand me like some abusive child? I don’t get it.

To be fair p7chu, I SEEM to remember about the same degree of certainty on Alves as there was on Kuyt so I understand your original post and (despite how unpopular this’ll be) I have simpathy. It was a brave post though man, really brave (as witnessed by your one ball – watch mine tumble now).

Comments and opinions are fine but if you post any form of digs at other members (we can look after ourselves), we’ll get rid. It’s only because we want a mature, more sensible feel about the place. It’s not personal, we just don’t want members taking shots at each other.

Need support? Please post a message in the ‘Member Support’ forum. Only KopTalk will see your message.

People can rate your posts (once for for your entire Koptalk life) by clicking on your name and ‘rate this user’. Tends to be a bit knee jerk at times though.

Thanks LfcEst1979 & Scotred. Support appreciated. Let’s all shake hands and be friends now ‘cos i’m not the mutiny kind and I think i’ve just been threatened with a ban and clearly this is going nowhere.

You have seen much worse but as posted all summer, we won’t tolerate any abuse or digs by members at members.

I took issue with this:

Quote:

…if you’re gonna put words in my mouth maybe take ya foot out of yours first and try and be factually correct.

I just don’t feel this is needed from anyone. It is these kind of comments that spark rows on the forums that we have to deal with, not yourself. Just be respectful to each other. If people can’t handle that they’ll be removed. This season we want the place to be less aggressive as there’s no need for it.

As I have made it clear, it’s not personal. If you want abusive forums, look around the web, there are plenty of them. We want a more mature atmosphere here.

Don’t worry Dunk – people are looking around, and as a result more and more members are finding a “community” they are comfortable with. And your member numbers continue to drop…

    funny how Dunk was claiming that personal terms have already been agreed for Kuyt several days ago and talking bullshit on how he rejected 90 000 from Newcastle to sign for us, only for the official site to state yersterday that personal terms have NOT yet been discussed. Funny how his guesswork always seems to be wrong

  2. Fred Says:

    Why does Dunk continually interfere with discussion on the boards? It would be a decent site if he just backed off a bit (okay – a lot). His regular unconstructive unnecessary interspersion really annoys me. His “moderation” is totally unreasonable, and well – plain stupid. I’ve witnessed loads of posts asking why threads have been locked or deleted, and there is never a rational explanation.

  3. Mudface Says:

    From yesterday’s NewsNow (I also posted this in the General Comments section)-

    Good to see the “Insiders” at Koptalk scooping everyone with this morning’s news-

    Liverpool agree fee for Dirk Kuyt – OFFICIAL KopTalk.com 10:16

    Kuyt arrives at Melwood to undergo medical KopTalk.com 10:16

    Liverpool agree fee for Dutchman Sky Sports 10:16

    Liverpool – Striker deal agreed EatSleepSport 10:14

    Liverpool agree fee for Feyenoord striker Kuyt Reuters 10:12

    Glenn Continues Striker Search As Kuyt Heads For Anfield Newcastle United FC – The Official Site 10:11

    Striker jets into Anfield Clubcall Sports 10:11

    Liverpool agree Kuyt fee The Daily Mail 10:07

    Reds Agree Kuyt Fee Sporting Life 10:01

    Liverpool move for striker Kuyt BBC Sport 09:57

    Reds Agree Kuyt Deal Liverpool FC – The Official Site 09:52

    Even the Newcastle site got there before them.

    As a sidenote, it’s interesting that the Official site, which usually only posts transfer news when the deal is officially completed, saw fit to a lot more pro-active with this than usual. I wonder if this is a result of the discussions on here?

  4. sadlyamember Says:

    Despite having an Etiquette policy, things are worse than ever in the forums. They are almost too depressing to read now, with bitchy comments almost compulsory on every post. The long-standing members who support Oldham seem exempt from any policy regarding behaviour, yet someone like Tom who I always took to be a straightforward and fair poster has been kicked out.. crazy and the nonsense spouted by Oldham is starting to become blatant.

    Incidenally, to try and claim any insider/prior knowledge of the Kuyt deal is ludricrous, as evident by the lack of any stories/posts regarding it.

  5. The Oracle Says:

    Funny how he wants a more mature atmosphere on the forums now, shame he didn’t introduce that policy earlier when he was referring to Peter Crouch as ‘Lurch’.

  6. DanTheMan Says:

    its pretty obvious that the real reason for p7chu’s reprimand had a lot more to do with the criticism of the insider service than with the ‘take yout foot out of your mouth’ abuse lol. i’m surprised he didnt jump on scotred and lfcest1979 for abusing the ball rating system.

  7. staniola Says:

    the guy is full of sh1te. i never signed up to the site and paid or anything, but i did used to click the ads as fat boy asked in order to keep the advertising revenue comingin for them. after reading all the stuff on this site i feel an urgent need to let all other reds know about this proper smug little get. i posted the link on the official site last night but it kept getting pulled. this guy winds me up for so many reasons. let’s put a stop to this jarg red nose once an for all. fat tw@t

  8. lobster Says:

    he probably “bookmarked” them already, ban/kick when necessary.

  9. fagan Says:

    interesting how he wont tolerate a very innocuous post from that guy p7chu, and terms it as abuse.

    yet if you listen to his podcast, the filthy language and bile that comes out of his mouth would make your eyes water.

    including calling cricket69 a f**king w*nker

    double standards from duncan disorderly

  10. Fat Tax Says:

    “If we make a decision, follow it through and then explain it, we’d be there all day”

    Hmm. Interesting that virtually every other organisation in corporate Britain would consider that to be a part of their usual operating procedures, isn’t it. What he means, as always is that he wants the benefits of running a corporate enterprise (namely a income) but whenever the question of addressing the responsibilities of that undertaking are raised, he wants to run a fan site instead.

    If you’re reading this (and I know you are…) here’s the deal. If people pay you for a service, you have an OBLIGATION (look it up) to provide some basic amenities in return. If my bank try to ring me and I’m not in, they don’t stop honouring cheques until I phone them. If BT try to ring me and I’m not in, they don’t cut my phone off until I write to them. If you run a website and charge people to access it’s content you have a responsibility to provide technical support and most companies would agree that you should do so in a manner that’s most convenient for the customer, not for you. You see, enduring that inconvenience is exactly what you’re being paid for.

  11. Fat Tax Says:

    Following on from that, “When it comes to support, we prefer to speak to you personally”. Really? Here’s a newsflash – if I’ve paid you money for a service, with all due respect I don’t give two fucks what you would rather do. I expect you to be interested uin what I’d rather do though. I don’t want to spend my precious leisure time talking to a fat geordie goon or his adolescent stooge, thanks all the same. I want to send a quick e-mail and receive one back shortly afterwards telling me that my problem’s sorted.

    And there’s a multi-satellite system up for grabs as a prize is there? You couldn’t make it up could you? Is it chipped Dunk? Old stock from Mr Johnson’s Emporium of Shonky Electrical Goods maybe?

  12. Alan Says:

    why dont we write to BBC’s watchdog about him, they love dealing with conmen?

  13. txtoto Says:

    Hes now claiming some members made fortunes by betting on insider news regarding Kuyt…clearly marketing his shit insider news. Then he makes a statement that people should not join to make money. He contradicts himseld in the very same news item.

  14. punt Says:

    did anyone see his “editorial” the other day praising the board that he has been slagging off for years now and agitated against by demanding they hand over to Morgan or the consortium he claims he has links with? funny old world

  15. univofchicago Says:

    Talking about Steve Morgan, you just reminded me of another Oldham bullshit classic. Anyone remember Oldham’s AGM report? He ran an exclusive several month ago about what went on at the AGM. He was then quizzed by one of the members, I think, about who his source was and why someone would ‘leak’ the contents to him. Oldham replied that there was a member on the board who was not happy with David Moores, and that the ‘leak’ was part of a subtle smearing effort to oust the chairman – basically implying Steve Morgan was leaking the contents of the AGM to Duncan Oldham. I find that quite disrespectful to David Moores and Steve Morgan. Despicable actually. Just goes to show the fatman has no redeemable qualities.
