    How can I earn it back? Is it possible for me to be forgiven? I want to make amends with and each and everyone of you that I've offended. I am not a bad person. I just want to be better. This a part of me trying to make myself better because I've learned just how bad I really can be. I'm a bigot, I'm full of hatred, I'ma no good prick. I wish I knew what to do but I don't. I am sorry but I don't know how to make you trist me again. I'm not evil. I'm just angry.

    You'll get my respect when you please yourself instead of trying to please others. Life is too short :)

    Really? I wouldn't know about that because I haven't had any respect to lose. It's sad :)

    Read some of the discussions on this forum, and try to imitate the styles of those who do not sound mean.

    You're self-hating. When you stop being self-hating people will respect you.

    Click on a random thread, find a large wall of text, cut it into 10+ quotes and straw man the crap out of it. Or if that's too much work, simply post "usa #1". Mad respect in no time

    If you want to be respected in a community, emulate those who are respected.

    :dubious:

    Respected people don't emulate each other. Nobody likes a brown-nosing copycat :)

    Like others have said, you have to respect yourself first.

    I'm not sure who you are, but if you want any of my respect, post a picture of yourself standing on one foot. More instructions to follow later

    Start calling Poland Eastern European, and make ten threads about it!

    That would give you major respect points.

    Once you've lost respect, you can never win it back. It's gone forever. All you can hope for is that someone, somewhere, has retained a tiny ounce of respect for you.


    Or you can kill 15 hookers. People'll respect you then, for sure.
