Another well respected member of koptalk left the site today. Actually he left a while back, but he wanted to say goodbye to his friends there, and explain to them why he was leaving. His post lasted only a few minutes, as you would expect, as there is still no room for criticism on koptalk. You are not allowed to state your opinion unless it’s approved by Dunk. Terry was also banned, not that I think he’s sorry for that.
If you are one of those who still use koptalk, or if you are considering signing up to the site, you should read what Terry has realized about koptalk. As far as I know, noone from this blog has been in touch with him before he decided to leave koptalk. I don’t even know if he has read this blog. But he points out a few of the most important issues we have been trying to get through for more than three years now. Here’s the post he made today:

Why I am leaving Koptalk
Well lads, time to say goodbye and let you know why I am leaving, although I am sure those who do not get the chance to read this before it is deleted by Dunk or one of his puppet mods, will be told that I still log on every day, post under a different name etc etc. Basically anything other than yet another long time member left because he realized just how bad things have gotten around here.
Main reasons for leaving;
Condescension by Dunk
Badmouthing of past members by Dunk
Lack of recognition of LFC related issues
Ask yourselves, how many threads are locked by Dunk for no logical reason?
Dave100 asks for SenorButch’s e-mail addy so he can talk to him about a Skybox and it is locked up pretty fast, real reason for locking it was that Dunk does not want members to communicate with each other, divide and conquer is his modus operandi. The board that Koptalk uses has many facilities that have been deliberately disabled by Dunk to prevent any form of communication between members, ask yourselves why. Why shouldn’t I be able to send a private message to another member just like I could do on other forums on whatever topic on the internet? Why are posts so quickly locked and deleted when anyone asks about another members whereabouts or e-mail address?
Someone posts about “Livertweet” and Dunk locks it without explanation. Someone asks why it was locked and Dunk replies, “it was closed purely to prevent any possible excitement/confusion”. Seems that Dunk only want us to read what he puts out through Informer and Wallet, who are of course, as everyone knows really, Dunk, that’s why Dave100 thanks Dunk nearly every time one of them makes a post. It is also pretty clear that 100% of what those two so called insiders post is made up bullsh1t put together from various other LFC sites and then qualified with a few corkers such as “it should happen tomorrow but it could be delayed so it might happen later”.
On the issue of lack of recognition of LFC related issues, go to any other LFC forum and look at the stickies concerning HJC, Michael Shields etc and look at what the posters on those sites do for these causes. Koptalk does absolutely nothing, they don’t mean anything to Dunk because it isn’t something he can make money from. To claim that it is a LFC community website and ignore these issues is a disgrace, could it be that Dunk doesn’t give a toss about LFC and sees this website as a chance to sit in Spain and feed his lifestyle by fleecing unsuspecting members of their hard earned money by feeding them bullsh1t?
Koptalk is dying on its feet and I think most of the remaining posters must realize that. There are still a few good posters there who surely must shake their heads when they log on to find inane drivel and bullsh1t. The recent exodus of long time and well respected posters such as SenorButch, RedKopMike, Ytse Jam, Selkirk, Sean Da Man, Penman and Cat2064 to name but a few has left the place soulless and deathly boring. The remaining long time posters like Lector and Legin hardly ever post anymore but I notice a lot of new members joining who I feel pity for.
I have found a much better place to spend my time and it is good to see a lot of the good posters there. It is a place completely free of the bullsh1t and negativity that we see posted on Koptalk and it is free. I have also done a bit of research about the so called haterz that Dunk claims are having a go at him because he banned them from Koptalk. That in itself is bullsh1t as they actually banned themselves. These people don’t hate Dunk, they don’t like him that’s for sure but what they are actually trying to do is to stop Dunk ripping off unsuspecting but true reds fans.
Dunk would do anything for money, remember the “buy me a pint” farce? If I was an LFC website owner and someone openly slagged me off on a blog as a former, now returned member, Kop, has done, would I take him back? Would I [oops]. Ask yourselves why Dunk has taken him back, the answer in common with most questions asked about Dunks integrity is money. You have it, he wants it and he will do anything to get his hands on it. Do you really think Dunk would pay out to the posters contributing to his latest Euro lottery scam? I don’t think so.
Anyway, time to say goodbye now, maybe I will speak to some of the good people on this site sometime in the future. Think about what I have said and sort your heads out. You will then know what to do.
If you want to get in touch with Terry having read his post, I’m sure I can arrange that. Just send me an e-mail and I’ll forward it to him.
