I think being good at doing something awful is more awful than being bad at it.

Here’s a radical idea: stop consuming gossip. It’s one of the most universally popular human vices in the world, and we honestly, unequivocally, unarguably know that the world would be a better place without it.
I’ve stopped consuming gossip, personal attacks, and general nastiness, and my life and outlook have improved. I maintain a more open mind about people, and I have more free time (from not reading stupid websites and gossiping about people) to create positive value in the world.
