You are allowed to feel superior in your particular area of expertise. Rather than people getting jealous and bitter about it they should feel happy for said person or rather use said person as a source of inspiration. When it starts getting into the area of criticising others then you can put your foot down. Because as we can see from this thread, this is what happens. Nothing is solved and it just becomes a waste of time, not to mention all the useful information ends up being ignored in favor of child like retaliation.
