Let me try to steer this.

My upbringing, and my life's lessons, have taught me alot about respect, and Igenerally apply that here, when reading others, off topic posts.

As for Fishing Forum respect, I personally respect the folks that are posting reports, with pictures, more than others. In my case, if you were to look at my reports, :doh you may see someone who really sucks, (true) but is slowly :banghead getting better.

The only way I'm getting better, is by taking the advice from folks who actually post reports (with pictures). With pictures and reports, I can sort through potential POSERS!!!! Also from my reports, you can call me out when I think I'm better than my reports indicate.

The other thing that I hate reading is that people don't post for negative reasons!!!! I love reading and looking at fishing pictures. If folks are not putting them on here because of X, let's get rid of X!!!!!!

Scott,

This is a good post. I think you and I went to the same "Finishing School", Parris Island where we learned respect. I recently read Former Georgia Governor Zell Miller's book, who also completed boot camp at PI, even before me, 1953 for the Gov., 1956 for me. It is a good read. The title is, "Corps Values, Everything You Need to Know I learned in the Marines".

In his last paragraph in the chapter on "RESPECT", he states:

"Consistent respect for ourselves and others will go a long way toward solving many of the problems of society."

I highly reccommend this short book to anyone needing "Core Values". If anyone knows of a young person who would profit by reading this book, let me know I will buy that person a copy.

I find that I respect folk who are good and humble... I had the opportunity to do some relief work after Katrina with 3 members who I respect without reservation.

I have fished with a few members who catch more fish than I ever will or have and simply ignore my ignorant taunts when on a given day I catch a bunch of dinks and they catch a single 'gator trout". And then they ask me to go fishing again!!!

I respect those that share techniques and spots even though they do not have too.

I repect posters who only post a great catch because they don't want to further the rabble that infects us.

I respect those posters who disagree with me, but do not insult me (or if they do, it's in fun).

I respect newbys who ask "Who?... What?... Where?... How? " without getting angry when their thread isderailed horribly and THEN...they come back with a good fishing report.

I respect FISHERMEN, and those that trulywant to join the fraternity!

Jim

Personally I don't feel that respect is earned by pictures on an internet website but the way ya represent yourself in real life. If forum respect is differant than that,well sh*t,I'd a been banned years ago. Just sayin!

I also served in the military, and that is not where I learned to respect other's. I was born and raised here, I'm one of those kids that said yes sir and yes ma'am automatically(and still do). I still open doors for other's, and give up my seat for ladies and elder's.I got my ass beat as a kid, there was no "time out". I tend to think I respect someone right off the bat, then let them work there way backwards, that being said, I don't think there's such a thing as "forum" respect.Whether that was at home or in the military, you were either raised right or not!

I will say, once someone has lost my respect, it is damn near impossible to get it back!

Like Tony said, you were either raised to have it or you weren't. My Mother always said you treat others like you want to be treated and if you can't say something nice don't say nothing at all. It all boils down to the question, am I my brothers keeper? The answer is unequivocally YES, we are our brothers keeper.

I agree with you 100%. I got my butt toasted if I opened my mouth or did something I wasn't supposed to do. My son gets the same treatment, and at 3 yo he has more respect running through his body than 90% of the people my age. I will also agree with oldflathead that the Marine Corps served it's purpose too, 21 and cocky sure didn't last to long on PI. As far as forum respect Don't be a douche and people will be more than willing to help you out and respect your opinions more than the guy that flaps his jaws. I guess I'm one of the happy few that understand I might not always catch the biggest fish!!!

<P class=MsoNormal style="MARGIN: 0in 0in 0pt">I spent 27 ½ years in the Corps and although I didn?t go to PI, I was a Hollywood Marine (<?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:smarttags" /><st1:City w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">San Diego</st1:place></st1:City>), I learned more abort respect my last 9 years while serving in Senior Enlisted positions. I saw many Senior Enlisted personnel of all services treat their subordinates like crap just because they could. You learn a lot about a person by the way he treats his subordinates. I?ve always tried to treat everyone with respect; subordinate or not. I?ll give respect until it is proven to me that the individual doesn?t deserve it. You cannot demand respect, you need to earn it through action. Just my .02.

I have to agree with Tony's take too. You respect everyone, do the right thing and have good manners. It doesn't matter if you are on the forum, in the store or on the water. Until someone does something to lose my respect, and like Tony, once you do something to lose it, you probably won't get it back. I think that the problem is that a lot of people just don't care about respect, thiers or anyone elses. If more people cared about other people rather than thier self centered and cocky attitude the whole world would be a better place, not to mention the PFF.

I respect the Golden Rule,"Do unto others,as you would wantdone to you."

I also respect people who calls a spade a spade and does not necessarily agree with the mob to stay popular.

Heck,I was banned so many times from Florida Sportsman for doing just that,calling them as I see them.It is not a popularity contest with me as well, far too many important things to worry about.Just my 2 cents worth.

Out of all the liars in the world I trust Fisherman the most. Respect is an earned tag not something you just get cause your a certain age or social standing. everybody's got an opinion it's how we deal with others that set us apart from the crowd.......It's ok to stand your ground.....just make surewhat your standin on isthe ground not a soap box.

Perfect example of a good person I met on here:

I met Curtis Gilbert aka "Garbo" years ago in the State park over here in Panama.We fished,bsed and just a nice guy.Before he left,he gave me and my buds free pomp jigs.Everytime he comes to P.C he leaves me a few at Howell Tackle.This past IFA Championship in Orange Beach,a friend of mine was pre-fishing and needed some areas to start looking,Curtis never met this guy,as I sent him Garbos way.Curtis happily gave him some info.Folks,that is what is all about!:bowdown
