It is a dismissive action that is mocking Xander as in a look you can’t see me along with teasing Spike. Buffy has always been fairly dismissive of Xander and his abilities.Xander walks in on her and Spike having sex. She nibbles Spike's ear while Xander is talking to him. She hardly 'shows him no respect whatsoever'. She's teasing Spike not Xander. Xander should learn how to knock and stop barging into people's homes.
It's not Buffy's responsibility to 'show respect' to the person who just barged in on her.
Who is to say Xander didn’t knock before coming down? I think it’s clear that Spike and Buffy were busy so I doubt they would notice. Also how you be mad at Xander for barging in on Buffy when as you highlight he didn’t know she was there?
