does no one have your respect until they've earned it, or does everyone have your respect until they've done something to countermand it?

Depends entirely upon what you mean by "respect." I treat people politely without them having to earn it. Being polite is a default state. If a person appears to need help, I'll offer assistance. I open doors for people, etc.

However, I do not revere, admire, honour, regard highly, etc. without the other person earning it. If my first encounter with someone is them acting like a jackass, then the default state automatically changes.
