yes i have and will <br />
don't judge a book by its cover
I tend to automatically respect people until I'm given a valid reason not to. And random gossip, imo, is not a valid reason.
Depends on what you respect the person for. For example, I respect a certain sportsperson for his feats on the field. Then I come to hear that he is cheating on his wife. Oh come on, no one is perfect. Especially when we form opinions about people without knowing them.
yeah, there was one person i admired and then i learned he was gay... doesn't really matter to me at all.
I prefer to form my own opinions about people....I don't let others' opinions sway my judgements....<br />
'Believe none of what you hear, and only half of what you see.'
Yes and then found out that which I heard was BS drummed up by foolish people.
I do respect people I do not personally know. And it depends on the kind of not so good news. Although I respect them, they still are human, and that is ok, but some things are in realm of such evil, it makes me lose respect.
I make up my own mind about people .. ba<x>sed on my experiences. I don't believe everything I hear.
