Which DDOers to you respect the most? Place them in order for highest being 1 and lowest at 10.

How do you quantify respect?

Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

Well, isn't this a huge d*cksucking event......

Let's get to blowin'...

1.> HonestDiscussioner - He once contacted a source I used in a debate and got a direct quote from a PHD at the school to denounce my claims. That was the most epic a**whooping I've ever received on this site. I think Scotty_Douglas was the only jack*ss brave enough to vote for me on that debate.

2.> KRFournier - Just plain talented debater.

3.> Zetsubou - Had a tough debate with him. Ended up as a tie.

4.>WallStreetAtheist - Makes me laugh....a lot.I really enjoyed his Muslim phase.

5.> Imabench - I wouldn't host the weekly stupid, if I didn't think it was entertaining.

6.>AnnaNicole - She is the most stubborn, relentlessly naive cow I have ever met. But she knows what hill she's buried on and I definitely respect that.

7.>andrewkletzien - A very approachable person with diametrically opposite views. I enjoy talking to people who can articulate their ideology.

8.> N/A
9.>N/A
10.>N/A

This isn't comprehensive, just because you're not on the list doesn't mean I don't respect you.

1. Sidewalker - Underrated, older user. Where have you been?
2. Wnope - I've always wondered what this person's education was because he was a deep knowledge of neuroscience. Definitely someone whose posts should be read.
3. Noumena - We've had our differences, and things can sometimes get a little heated. That he was able to put this aside in his assessment speaks volumes - that is, coming from a true ideological opponent.
4. Darkkermit - We disagree but I see where you're coming from. Non-dogmatic, reasonable person.
5. PCP - There's a lot I could learn from what. What denomination are you? I take it you're a liberal protestant?
6. Logic_on_rails - Killer chess player and intimidatingly smart for someone of his age.
7. Kinesis - Another reasonable person, I like how we tend to discuss rather than debate.
8. Danielle - Despite the fact that we agree on somethings I do sometimes feel we see the world from very different angles. I felt compelled to put you on here due to a kind of mutual, intellectual respect. We'll have to debate sometime. I'd like to have a beer with you.
9. WW - Another rarer, underrated user.
10. Stephen_Hawkings - I sometimes see a younger version of myself of you. Sharp user who can certainly defend his views. Keep going - you have serious potential.

Being smart doesn't automatically earn you my respect.

I could name many, many more and after the first 2 (who I think are the most valuable members of the site) the order is pretty meaningless.

I'll be honest, when I saw this I thought "Why am I clicking on this? I know I'm not going to be up there...

Um, I don't know why anybody is bothering to say "If you didn't make it, it doesn't mean I don't respect you". It's not like you're making anybody feel better if they're upset about this. It didn't make me feel any better when Harvard sent me a form letter telling me that my application was strong but that I still was getting rejected. If anything, it's just a way of making you feel better because you think you're reducing the impact on people who are upset.

Sorry, just a pet peeve. I'd understand the social custom if it actually made people feel better, but it doesn't.

Also, a lot of the people on my list were just people I remembered at the time. I would probably have a different list if I came up with it again tomorrow.

@Kinesis, I get what you're saying, but why not include all of the people? Why say that you respect people who aren't on the list? Are the people on the list going to care? Nope. They're just going to know that they weren't on your list. You could have just made your top ten list and have been done with it. That's what I did.
