For me to be able to answer this question, I'll have to know whether you
consider being "good" to be incompatible with actions that tend to
elicit direct personal critiques from for deliberately bad reasoning or
dishonesty[1].  I personally tend to use the stridency with which I am
accused of bad actions as a rough guide to the level of esteem in which
I am held.  However, this may not be an accurate metric when it comes to
your assessments.

Please advise.

[1] I probably would, myself -- hence the wry remark.
