Remedial Training in Progress

Raider Take has logged thousands of comments on the more than 270 takes published over the past 14 months. In this time, I have never deleted a reader comment (except occasional and accidental repeat comments). Raider Take is open to all viewpoints, including opposing viewpoints. Comments can be short, long, humorous, serious, critical and even vulgar (although I’m personally not a fan of the latter).

However, I draw the line at brain dead. Therefore, I am going to ban and delete all comments rendered by the child who has been recently posting jibberish pertaining to the so-called “faidas.” It’s not the taunting that bothers me, it’s all of his mental midget litter that’s starting to pile up on my web site. This is not a case of banning a Raiders Hater—we’ve logged plenty of comments from Raiders Haters who actually have something to say. It’s simply a little “time out” for one individual, as well as a public service and a bit of remedial training.

Our take-challenged prodigal child will be welcomed back to the adults' table if he ever strings some intelligent words together.

Thank you RT::
I think this is a very good decission for the site, and it was your decission to make..I also like to interact with some of the anti-fans if they have a team they suport and have something to say, but this guy had nothing to say, it was an iligitimate speaker who had all the signs of an obsessed mental problem. Who needs it???

I think we all want to enjoy the ups and the downs and have some fun with our team, we do not all agree with eachother and can disagree at will, makes for a good exchange, and as with me, I have changed some of my opinions as a result. Its alway good to view the other mans side, not alway pleasant, but always interesting!!!

Love the site, good work

Thanks, PantyRaider, I appreciate your support and feedback, as well as your takes!

I don't view this as censorship. I view it as a public service, like neutering stray cats or picking up trash on the beach.

Amen RT! I think that guy was the same guy who goes as 49ers4ever on the Contra Costa Times discussion board. Before they made folks register he was REALLY vulgar.

Someone calling us Faidas? I bet this is the same guy that's on the yahoo message boards for the pick'em EVERY YEAR with his same old tired bullsh*t.
You've probably done the best thing you could possibly do by kicking him out. He IS braindead.

Seriously, RT. It was getting hard to even follow conversations on your takes with his snide little remarks. Commenting on a viewpoint is one thing...Making discussion difficult is another. Good move.

If that dude ever had anything worthwhile to say, even as a Raider Hater, I'd say you shouldn't ban him. We can take criticism of our team. They deserve it sometimes.

But he just never did.

Good riddance.
