I disagree and agree

It depends on how you define respect.

I'm using it in the sense of basic decency and maturity; you can lose that kind of respect, but at the start it's just sort of assumed that one deserves it.

In the sense of looking up to someone or using them as an example, sure. THEN it has to be earned.

But I think that, until they demonstrate otherwise, everyone is deserving of basic respectful treatment in debate.
