I'd add Entropy to the hall of shame here and a lot of the stuff in the article and his comments to Angel on Grad Day 2 but on the plus side there's The Freshman comment, his behaviour in Triangle and other. He's not my favourite character but I'll cosign on the good stuff. I also think he deserves sympathy for what Faith did to him that goes utterly unaddressed.Overall I don't despise or hate Xander even if he is far from my favorite character. I just despise Xander in some moments (mostly in S2 or S3) like other characters when they do something that I hate. I despise him in Becoming (I don't need to explain), in revelation because he manipulated Faith or in Dead Man Party when he's disgusting towards Buffy, his best friend. But overall I don't hate him, he's a part of BTVS, I love him in The Zeppo, his relationship with Willow or his loyalty towards his friends (Graduation Day) despite him being a person with no power.
