Duncan Oldham says that this blog doesn’t bother him. He loves the negative publicity because he says there’s no such thing as bad publicity.
He tells anyone who listens how the publicity has done him no end of good. Book sales and memberships went through the roof in the summer, he claimed.
Funny how this surge in memberships was followed days later by the closure of his “free” sites. (“Free” as in no membership fee, not “Free” as in “free speech”). Maybe he Konned a few leftover free-site visitors into paying for his pathetic £30 members’ “service”, but I’d hardly call it a surge. The vast majority of the posts made in there are from Dunk, ST3, Katie and Rich Tea. We get to watch the increasingly sad Rich Tea make a fool of himself with his chat-up lines to Katie. Even he’s started posting less now, realising perhaps at long last that the text message he uses as the basis of his faith in Dunk was actually a fake one. Most of the posts on Koptalk now are from 3 or 4 particular members and the rest are from Dunk, his aliases or whichever family member he’s Konned into helping out. Often times a thread consists of Dunk saying something dull, then replying to himself as “Koptalk.com” half an hour later, before Katie steps in 20 minutes later, followed by “ST3” (actually Dunk). People paid £30 for something they could get for this!
As for the book – well I really can’t see many people forking out the £5 deposit for the book that doesn’t exist, and has failed to exist ever since it was first announced three or four years ago. Not after reading here about this being the case.
The book was promised by Dunk before the start of the new season, but he later changed that to “by the end of the year”. He later changed it again to “by the end of the season”. That’s all well and good, and we look forward to it, but unless he’s got the presses rolling as we speak it looks like we’re all going to get some free memberships to his site…

I just need Steve to get his arse back.
S0, four days (including today) to get the book out Dunk. Or it’s “FREE Gold Club memberships for everyone for life”. LOL!
We look forward to it, we’ll have a lot of fun with our free memberships.
One of the reasons this blog has been a success is because nobody likes a bully. Dunk has been an internet bully for years now. Anyone who stands up to him is banned from his forums, and in the past any forums who allowed members to speak the truth about him were threatened with legal action. He’s also taken great pleasure in buying alternative domain names from other LFC sites and pointing them to his own sites. See Cyber Squatter on here for more about the numerous names he’s taken.
As with all bullies, the thing they really detest is a taste of their own medicine. It’s threats of legal action against him that are probably behind his recent 9-day pretend visit to New York. As for the domain names, his excuses in the past included “I bought them to protect them for my fellow Reds” or some such bullshit. He later admitted that he bought them because those sites had allowed members to speak the truth about him (although he didn’t put it that way of course). Funny though, when someone did it to him he didn’t like it at all. http://www.koptalk-insider.com’s secret owner (not connected in any way to this blog) got the following email…

PO Box 556

Office of the General Manager
(Remember, this blog doesn’t bother him, he loves the free publicity). I am quite happy to act as an agent for the domain’s owner in terms of the provision of contact details – please supply my email address, koptalk.insider at gmail.com as the contact, and my name, “Koptalk Insider”. My name, “Koptalk Insider” is real as the name provided above, “Paul Harper”. And I’d also point out that PO Box numbers don’t really count as postal addresses for legal matters so he needs to provide something better for that too.
It would also be interesting for Dunk to point out how the term “Kop Talk”, differs from “The Liverpool Way” and “EST1892” and other such LFC terms he’s stolen the domain names for. “Kop Talk” refers to conversations amongst Liverpool fans on the most famous stand in world football. The term “Kop” is used at more than one ground for the home end, and has been since the turn of the last century. If anyone took a trademarked term illegally it has to be pointed out that Duncan Oldham started using the term “Kop Talk” for his site after he’d seen the success of the premium-rate phone service (and, later, a website) called “Team Talk”. I’d be interested in seeing the outcome of his legal actions against anyone using the term “Kop Talk” – because he’ll then be open to the same judgement for his many stolen “trademarks” too.
And he’ll need to skim a lot more money out of his dodgy charity appeals to pay those costs then. We’ve still not seen a receipt for the Alder Hey appeal. Not one. Perhaps if you send an email to him you’ll have more luck than we have…
