Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted

"Slandered Reputation" by DragonSkulls

I was fairly well known in the community. I've had numerous successes, not
to mention my vast array of generous contributions. Then came the day my
reputation was slandered. Another high-ranking, esteemed colleague within
the society had the audacity to drag my honored name through the mud. He
dared to point out my imperfections with malice, offering no valid reasoning
behind such accusations.

The damage was irreversible. Negotiations on my part were rendered moot. He
stood firm in his condemnations.

I pondered many hours upon the dilemma at hand and came to the only one
possible conclusion...revenge. I, too, can belittle one's worth.

I deviously planned for days, watching his every move. The moment had to be
precise, when he was once more at his peak of recognition. Then the day
presented itself, when the masses again witnessed him as exceptional. It was
that very moment I knew I had to strike.

I wish I could have seen his face for surely his dignity savagely withered when
I so elegantly came back with my wee, two-star revenge review.
