Shortly after Oldham delivered his confession on the book, nailing that one down – he thought – I received an email from one of his long-standing members. This was not one of the alleged “troublemakers” but someone who has actually enjoyed KopTalk in the past and is not afraid to say so.
We’ve made the point before, how well the cult’s censorship works, that members of many years standing don’t know why other members left or where they have gone. And then they discover the blog!
He was kind enough to let me publish the letter without identifying details. So I’ll let it speak for itself.
“I stumbled across your blog and it’s very interesting and has really opened my eyes. I’ve been a Koptalk member for a few years and I’ve grown more sceptical about its’ claims of Insider knowledge. Most of the news is contradictory and there’s no real Insider news.
None of that will surprise you, I’m sure.
The one thing I have noticed is the sudden disappearance of some of the long-standing and high-profile members. Then I scanned your “About Us” page and see there’s an “Honourable Insider” and a “Stannard Insider”……………these wouldn’t be Honourable George and Peter Stannard, former Insiders, would they?!
Both those guys seemed very credible but left suddenly and you hear stories of people leaving after arguments. In fact, one memeber left suddenly the other day.
Even without reading the blog fully, I can accept Dunk’s dislike of foreigners, “mistakes” over the S*n and other stuff as I’ve seen this stuff myself. Sadly, opinions aren’t welcome on Koptalk if they disagree with Dunk…….
Anyway, I guess my eyes have opened (I think I knew I was wasting my cash anyway!) and I’m cancelling my Paypal renewal this morning. I’ll let my membership lapse and move on.”
