Hear hear! I've dealt with many extremely talented people who are for  
lack of a better word - worthless. Had a few work for me. Talent  
without drive is no gift - more of a curse.

If more people would spend more time bettering themselves rather than  
trying to pull others down, the general situation would improve.

The latter of course, is orders of magnitude easier.
