Still no justification for his use of paedophillia as a subject for a joke, but Dunk was asked about why he uses his kids on his sites so much if he’s genuinely bothered about their safety. If they are genuinely the subject of threats…

Im not one to normally comment on the politics of websites, but I am saddened to lean that your kids have had problems. One thing I must say tho, is why then keep them in the public eye? Why publish their pics, their names and even give them jobs as mods? Surely this only makes it easier for them to be open to any type of abuse? The same goes for Steve, he’s always featuring in pics and vids, making him instantly recognisable to certain people. In fact the only person we don’t see much of these days is your good self. If you’re too worried to show yourself on this site these days, surely you should give the same security to your family? I’m sorry if this sounds out of order, I don’t intend to be, but knowing forum-style websites like I do, if I had one meself, my kids woldn’t be anywhere near it.
“In fact I’m going to make a promise which will be welcomed by many. If there’s no finance secured by the opening day of the season, I’m going to hang up my keyboard and close KOPTALK down.” Dunk, 29/03/06

There’s something wrong if we can’t post family pics etc. Having to blur out faces would be a bit sad. It’s always been a family thing here, that’s just the way it is. And as for worried about showing myself, everyone knows what I look like, my pics have been used on here loads of times. It’s just that I use the equipment because there’s only me who knows the kind of stuff I want. Even when I got married at Anfield we put all the photos on. We just never anticipated that we’d attract stalkers. When we met Richt at York I didn’t put a bag over my head.
It’s a family run website and my kids enjoy taking part. There’s no way I’m going to tell them they can’t contribute because of a couple of clowns.
As for names, people who know us have often said “How’s Charlotte?” etc. It’s impossible to retain privacy. What you say makes sense but when your kids have been on TV (Sky Sports etc) and in the papers in relation to the site, what do you do, ask them to blank out their faces because of some muppets?
As I said, your post makes some sense. Maybe I’ve been naive. Maybe I didn’t think people would ever stoop so low to frighten kids. Although they won’t be walking around with duvets over their heads Michael Jackson style, they won’t be involved as much as they have been. We just never knew how big the site would become. It was never intended to be anything more than a bit of fun, a hobby.
PS: The sig… I never said which season (that’s his answer to the quote about jacking it all in if we don’t get investment. Great answer Dunk.)

Sorry mate but I’d have to disagree too, think it would be quite sensible and easy to keep your children out of the public eye, especially if theyve had nightmares. My opionion of the internet is that it is a dodgy place with all sorts of dodgy people, and not the kind of place for children.
can i just say to clarify, there’s no harm posting family pics if it’s kind of privately between the family, but koptalk is a HUGE community of people you don’t know anything about. they’re too young to be in the public eye mate.
It’s fair enough what you’ve said, sure, but i was intrigued about what was going on so took a look at the blog to see what the other side is (bad me! ), but they’re saying there as been no threats and youve made them up ?? – and if there is then they’ll help find the persetrators, id take up the offer mate. this is a VERY serious matter and the bloggers know it too and will help you find whoever doctored those photos you say you have received.
other than that keep up the good work mate, loved all the melwood stuff

Now, rather than answer himself, he tells Steve what to say for him…

Best have a word with Rafa and the lads and tell them not to involve their kids whenever we win a cup.
If we had a lense wide enough I’d snap the boss every day. He’s not as good looking as me though
Does anyone actually understand that? Still, take note briefly what it says. “If WE had a lense wide enough I’d snap the boss every day.” If Koptalk had a lense wide enough, STEVE would take a picture of Rafa every day. Actually Steve you wouldn’t – Dunk won’t let anyone else use the camera! Pay attention please. And he’s back for some more…

We’ve moved on mate. Dunk just posted about he could handle the flack given by other websites but that he was concerned that some people had started to target his kids and family with prank calls, nasty letters and so on. We don’t mind if they want to diss Dunk and I but the kids have been scared recently. The issue had to be raised
I think we can safely say that Dunk’s had an earbashing from someone in the family about his paedo joke and about the fake stories about his kids. I hope we can anyway, because if they can’t condemn him for the bullshit on that front then they are as bad as he is.
WE ARE STILL WAITING FOR HIM TO FORWARD US ANY DETAILS OF THESE THREATS TO HIS KIDS. I’LL REPEAT MY OFFER. DUNK: FORWARD ME THE EMAILS INCLUDING THE FULL HEADERS AND I WILL SEE IF I CAN HELP YOU TO WORK OUT WHO SENT THEM. STEVE – IF YOU’VE SEEN THEM TOO, WHY DON’T YOU DO THE DECENT THING AND FORWARD THEM HERE? koptalk.insider at gmail.com. IF THEY EXIST, WE’LL FIND OUT WHO IT IS. IF THEY DON’T – ADMIT IT AND WE CAN MOVE ON.
As for Dunk’s “explanation” – what do you think? Should he keep his kids off his site if they’ve been threatened? Should he put hits first? Couldn’t he take photos of them so that they are “involved” as he puts it, but use other ones on the site instead? Simple enough ideas really, but that’s just my view.
Maybe someone should report the threats for him – if they are real then the people who look at these things will investigate for him. If not then he’ll have a bit of explaining to do. Especially if they find out about the paedo jokes.
