Well besides the Monastics who frequent here, who are invaluable members, I would include (and have added two member monastics I feel deserve special note)
Venerable Bhikshu Hufieng (hope the spelling is correct)
and last but not least Greagory Krahmer.
I could continue, but the list would be just people I liked then.
Except for Venerable Analayo I have met each of these teachers, and whether they know it or not have given me fine examples, even if I havn't lived up to their examples. and those who are underlined have changed my opinion in a big way, even if they hadn't done so directly.
They are also not necessarily in order of how much I like them but Vassa/when I met them in person.

He who knows only his own side of the case knows little of that. His reasons may be good, and no one may have been able to refute them.
But if he is equally unable to refute the reasons on the opposite side, if he does not so much as know what they are, he has no ground for preferring either opinion …
He must be able to hear them from persons who actually believe them … he must know them in their most plausible and persuasive form.
