Yesterday was a day of mixed messages on KopTalk.
First there was Oldham’s Master Class on how to make money from LFC fans by claiming to be an “Insider”. He boasted he was very good at it. And he explained his technique. Be controversial, be different, stand out from the crowd. But he never said a word about being honest and truthful.
It was a typical self-congratulatory KopTalk thread entitled “What enticed you to become an Insider” – another opportunity for cultees to pay homage to their leader.
But Todda, one of the members, replied to the effect – I was conned into thinking KT was full of people in the know, and after a year I haven’t really seen anything that I couldn’t find anywhere else and the “Informer” is bull.
He was banned instantly (see commentary after this thread from Josh) . No doubt we’ll hear later that he was bullying the lurkers.
This was followed by the daily ration from the KopTalk Insider service – the “official” news from LFC.
It was not under the guise of the Informer this time or the Horse, but from Ste3 – who is Steve’s organ-grinder aka as Duncan Oldham.
The Informer is one of his techniques of (a) absolving himself of direct responsibility for selling lies to LFC fans (b) while at the same time suggesting that someone very close to Horse – Rick Parry – considers Oldham so important that he should be kept fully informed of the most minute details of Parry’s work on transfers.
But as this post shows, Oldham encourages his paying members to get caught up in the guessing game. He does not mind them suggesting he is the Informer.
As long as they say it and not him – its having your cake and eating it too.
So what else needed doing?
Well he had to keep working on his defence. He reads the blog more keenly than anyone else – including all the comments. He sees the references to his Insider scam being a major fraud. He does not know exactly what’s going on but he knows enough to be worried.
So he has another go at rationalizing his censorship that is designed to prevent paying members from learning what the genuine LFC sites are saying about his Insider scam.
In the process he takes the opportunity to say – “wot an Insider service? – not here – we’re legit”.
But he forgets, as he often does, that he has just boasted how good he is at it, just made another claim to “Insider” sources at Melwood and just participated in thread entitled “What enticed you to become an Insider?”
And before anyone asks why the members of KopTalk don’t see through it – some of them do. Apart from Todda standing up to the KopTalk bully and getting banned for it, I got all the screen shots shown here from several current KopTalk members.
Thanks to them for sending in the evidence and thanks to Oldham for providing it. Keep it coming.
