Who do you respect even when you don't agree?

It's easy to like/respect those we agree with, but I'm curious to known who we can disagree/debate with but still admire

Frankly speaking, i respect basically ALL PEOPLE and, particularly, ALL OPINIONS.

Easier for me to say who i don't respect:

1. Those who don't discuss, they just state and stare

2. Those who use insults to boost their argument

Maybe the only person I respect even when we disagree is Volcana. Even when his/her(clarify please?) opinions differ from others, Volcana never insults a player and rarely a poster unless they deserve it.

Similar to Way.

I respect anyone that doesn't resort to personal attacks on other posters. I respect people that don't stereotype all fans of a particular player by the actions of the most negative examples.

fans from who I can see that they love their fav because they spend time rooting for her/him, instead of bashing and insulting the rivals all the time!

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

I really respect all of these posters even though the same isn't shown, everyone is giving their opinion on different subjects, really when you think abou it, you may want to make a point, or tell them what you think of their opinon and what they say, everyone on this board, either conisdered's the thread as a "hate thread" or a "good thread". which really there is only 1. Everyone posts "good threads". But in another person's opinoin, they might not like it.

Oh, I dunno. It depends on the situation.

But Ryan15, I have to disagree with you about Volcana. I used to actually think he was slightly impartial, but he/she has been going on a psychotic rampage the past few weeks regarding his favorite.

My respect goes to posters who have an independent mind, who can generate their own ideas, who can step over their sympathies to their fave and critisize her as if she is not a fave of yours, to those who can be against stupidity, rudeness, arrogance coming from the fans of your group. You know what I mean..

LOL, ys, I can only count a handful of posters on the board who "live up" to those standards. o0O0o, I still respect Volcana, everyone goes crazy at some point or another.

Even though I disagree with him sometimes he always keeps it real..

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me, than a frontal lobotomy.

I respect posters who really try and view the tennis world as impartially as possible. meaning, they recognize their bias as a fan of a particular player(s) and try and have an opinion on an issue that is not solely based on the relationship of the issue at hand with their fave. In the same way, its irritating when posters view a situation negatively, when you can tell its more about their dislike of the player rather than the situation itself.

Not really, most of European posters are like that. You won't see them much of talking crap, repeating stupid stereotypes after some less-than-genious announcers, calling names, overusing profanities, gloating over fans of beaten opponents, and never get personal. Quite a few of Canadian posters also fit that description. And from other countries too.
