The sentiment expressed in the first quote is indicative of how great things can be on the forum. Respecting others in spite of disagreements is the kind of atmosphere that encourages the exchange of information and ideas.

The second quote although stated in the context of discussing the forum rules was a bit of a downer.

It can’t be denied that both guys have consistently presented excellent points of view, but to my way of thinking, the quote from the first guy was more enlightened.
And the quote fron the second guy was meant to be taken in good humor.

But then again, I respect idiots as well.
