It’s one week since Oldham lied about the nature and number of the contacts he made with George Gillett’s office “in Montreal”. We saw that his lies disgusted some Koptalk members who promptly quit his site.
It was the last straw for others, too. In the last week, Koptalk’s traffic has fallen even further to the extreme levels of the September to mid-November period last year. But its a lot worse now than then. Because now the hits include all his sites combined, the forums as well as the main Koptalk.com site, and all the page-turning including all his own clicks and Steve’s and Katie’s and the clicks of his paid cultists – such as RichT and Disco.

Koptalk.com users come from these countries:
Provided by Alexa.
The United Kingdom figures are inflated by the several computers in Oldham’s shed in Wallsend (and in his “fleet” of white vans) and in the homes and workplaces of the various paid moderators of his cult (paid by free memberships that are conditional on them filling their quota of posts).
I would suggest that a true figure for the UK, without the KT computers, would be closer to that of Ireland.
The relative prominence of Singapore and Hong Kong is noteworthy as is the cumulative total from Asian countries. We are not talking about a large number of hits – but of percentages of his small number of total hits.
The Asian hits seem to be generated by links to Koptalk on various supporter sites. In Asia they are not aware of the blog yet. But the process has started. A reader recently wrote to the Official Hong Kong site to ask it to drop the link to Koptalk or match it with a link to the blog so that readers can decide for themselves.
Making adjustments for the KT computers and the disproportionate activities of his family, paid moderators and “trustees”, my interpretation of the Alexa figures is:
60% of the hits come from overseas:
40% of the hits come from the UK and Ireland, treated as a combined total.
28% come from the United Kingdom:
5% from Merseyside:
2% from Liverpool.
One thing Koptalk is not – its not a Liverpool site – not “a virtual Kop”. Its sole owner has never lived or worked in Liverpool.
Dave A, aka as LPLFC1892 will be disappointed that hits from New Zealand are not significant enough to be counted by Alexa. He’s worked so hard to trick a number of TV networks in New Zealand into giving free publicity to Koptalk – he’s even conned the Prime Minister – he says.
As usual he logged in to Koptalk to get his gold star from his con master. You can read it in this screen shot from the shout-box provided by Stannard Insider.
[LPLFC1892] Good, Koptalk has been on the national news three times in the past 7 days. I have been interviewed twice for the news and both times wore my badge.
[LPLFC1892] My mates tell me it was clear to see for all. The third time was when I was meeting with the PM, and she actually asked what the badge was for. She knew about Istanbul and the five stars. Well briefed is our helen.
[Dunk] nice one
[LPLFC1892] not only that but last night I was having a beer with one of the lighting engineers for the new Anfield which is what they are calling it.
[Katie] woo hoo nice!!!!!
[LPLFC1892] I had my Liverpool tie on as well
But Oldham wasn’t going to drag himself away from his new porn site to give Dave A another pat on the head no matter how tall his tales became – even if he were to report that the New Zealand legislature voted to incorporate the Koptalk badge in the national flag.
And it was no use Dave A sucking up to Katie either. Here he is checking into his virtual family again. I wonder if he told the Prime Minister of New Zealand that the Kop is a garden shed in Wallsend-Newcastle.
[LPLFC1892] Evening All
[Katie] hi LP
[LPLFC1892] Its very quiet on here at present
[Katie] It is indeed 😀
[LPLFC1892] It will get quieter now i’m of to bed for a good ……. read.
