Are people who do their jobs at 80% accuracy remotely qualified to tell anyone else how to do theirs?
A lot of people I work with don't even get that 80%, yet they are more than willing to tell everyone what to do Sigh | :sigh:
The most extreme case being a (now ex-)coworker who told me my JavaScript was way off and I had to rewrite it (because I used a module pattern rather than putting everything in the global scope).
That same coworker told me he couldn't even read my C# code because the syntax was foreign to him (I used a Func<something> with a lambda expression...)
This guy had such a big mouth that the entire project was suffering from his incompetence and he brought the whole team down to his level.

The problem is that this guy worked hard (producing negative results), so this new system would probably give him a high rating.

This isn't my only example either.
Basically, I think the harder people shout what you should do and how you should do it, the less qualified they are.
If they knew how to do their job they wouldn't be so concerned about the work of others...
