|I agree, but someone has to start it off. Someone has to be the bigger person and show what respect is so those the ones that have no clue can get an idea of what respect is. I always like to try to be the one that shows respect first. That way I can always say with confidence and without a doubt, "I TRIED." It is also rewarding to see the reaction of a respectless person's face, when someone shows respect to them first. I'll try first, but if there is no change, it becomes a "you get what you give event."|

|Respect on this forum appears to be more than a two way street. Just what I've noticed in my short time here.|
I don't feel I've been disrespected in any way, but every time I come on the forum I see less stuff that's interesting and more people going at each other.
Respect on here is more like an 8 lane highway, with a roundabout, 13 sets of lights, a pedestrian crossing, a squirrel that keeps criscrossing the street and stopping in the middle, someone driving too slow in the passing lane with their right turn signal on, a school bus that keeps stopping at every address, etc. Oh, and a radar trap. And an off ramp from the middle lane.

|I respect everyone till I am flat out lied to and disrespected. The admins of this site have been so disrespected over time and you say it is a two way street, no mostly it is a one way street with the same members disrespecting all admins. You don't like me or any other admins well tough we have a job to do and we will continue to do it. You either accept it or move on.|

|Maybe there is something going on behind the scenes that I'm not aware of. But I didn't get the impression that the original poster was intending to make this an Admin vs the masses respect dispute.|
At least that is the way I read it.
I miss old Rodney Dangerfield who always used to say "I can't get no respect".
Respect is a two way street for sure.

|It is because I said in another thread something about disrespecting the admins.|

|Sorry, didn't see the other thread.|

|I know. How are you doing Ninja?|

|Alright, I'm fine, a few health issues with the wife right now. But we are working on them.|
by GSD Admin on 12 May 2012 - 15:10
|Sorry to hear that I hope she gets to feeling better, not much worse than watching a loved one suffer with poor health.|

|I have never lied to Admins. Let's clear that one up for starters.|

|How many would respect an authority that can betray with non-chalance, an abuse of a confidence and then trivialize the outrage that occurs with such an event?|
I wasn't rewarded very well for my support by an Admin on this site, and now he does keep suggesting I bee gone. These words will probably find a way for someone with a grudge against me to get me banned. Other posters saying that I was being favored by Admin, when I was only showing open support for this site and its mods, has not worked well for me, but has worked spectacularly for them. Of course, I know the probability that these words will be dismissed and my reality denied are quite high.
I had a history of always supporting SP. That is beginning to sound like a good reason to bee gone.

I hope your wife is ok. Let me know if there is anything I can do.
As far as respect goes, there is very little to be found here by some folks.

|I think, respect is a feeling - atype thought submission so to speak regulated by age. I respect my, dad, mom, and grandpa - my son respects me. There is a huge difference between my respect to my mom, dad and grandpa compared to my son's respect for me - but, they are directly related atype thoughts.|
For example : My dad doesn't like me being political AT ALL he doesn't like me traveling the airways, taking metro's, transit buses, taxies in big cities, staying in hotel rooms neighboring some of the most corrupt American traitors in world history - he thinks I'm going to get killed. I respect his opinions and concern, but I'm my own person with my own adventures and I'm over 18. LOL
My mom and grandpa on the other hand, encourage me to continue (mainly because of Google with improved panopticon surveillance, GPS, check-ins/outs, backround noise of environment reporting, personal security with on demand government dispatch). At first, grandpa was on my dads side for years (nobody goes against my dad - it's that continuum of respect) - it's only after my grandpa vetted thoroughly the Ron Paul Revolution and Google's admin in personal security.
My son is completely different with respect for me by default. If I say he can't go pool hoppin with his friends at midnight - he's not going pool hopin with his friends at midnight. He is forced to respect my decision. If he doesn't get good grades, he not leave the farm. If he doesn't do his home work, he not leavin the house. Fortunately for me, my son has always respected my final say. Now that he's 14 and smart as a whip, he's beginning to challenge my decisions and debate on his own behalf ... at this point I just end it with "who's the boss" LOL
I love my life !!
As far as everyone else in regards to respect, it has always been - you give and you shall recieve.

|Respect can only be given, it is a kin to trust.|
It can not be demanded and should not ever be expected, it is a gift and can only be earned, not bargained for.
It is not a two way street.
It can be taught, but never dictated.
Respect has many faces, many meanings, and can be lost as quickly as trust.
