I think Jack and Mac nailed it right out of the gate!

Never prove the theory that there are more horse’s asses in the world than there are horses.

Show respect and back up your words with consistent action.

MacBean's avatar

Yeah, I’d GA myself for that one if I could.

Oh. Also: show humility.

Never let me down. Be there for me as much as I’d be there for you.

AOTA – plus making me smile.

Zen's avatar

@augustlan AOTA = All of the above. It might be my own acronym. Sorry.

augustlan's avatar

@Zen Thanks… I was momentarily befuddled.

Zen's avatar

@augustlan Lucky for you it’s only momentary. I’m always befuddled.

augustlan's avatar

I’m sure I’ll be momentarily befuddled again in another moment or two!

How long have you been moderating? Do you like it? Are you paid? I used to moderate MSN chat rooms – it wasn’t all it was cracked up to be.

Honesty and consideration for others gets my respect every time.

augustlan's avatar

@Zen I’ll send you a PM (comment) so as not to derail the thread.

Courtesy, respect, and kindness.

TheLoneMonk's avatar

Admit it if you break wind.

Aethelwine's avatar

All of the above. Also, someone who stands for what they believe in (in a respectful way), especially if they are in the minority.

AstroChuck's avatar

Just be honest with me.

Being liberal goes a long way too.

wundayatta's avatar

Be really good at what you do. Be fun to talk to. Teach me a lot. Be friendly, honest, humane.

I can respect people who only have some of those things, but then the respect is limited to those things. Like, if someone was a really good musician, but otherwise was a jerk, I’d respect their musicianship, but not much else.

” Mr. Wolfman ” is a good start.
