Actually, I think people who continually lie about others to pretend that they're victims in the very act of victimizing someone else are the ones who fit the profile of "Drama Queen" to a 'T.' And we know what I'm talking about.
And you managed to get everyone to look at "you" right now, right here, and sympathize with your modest desire NOT to be the center of attention with this question which, btw, actually DID give you quite a bit of attention, didn't it? And just the attention you wanted, too. How cleverly done.
So, given that you did this so cleverly, and that you managed to get the attention you wanted, and since we're assuming you're one of the "good guys," right, we have to say for the sake of being consistent and logical that it's not ALWAYS bad to be "the center of attention"--we just have to want to be the "center of attention" for the right reasons, like making a self righteous announcement about the foibles of others and how you have managed to miraculously and angelically avoid them yourself.
Thank you so much for clarifying this sticky point with such a brilliantly subtle question, in which you achieved the rhetorical effect you wanted so well. You definitely deserve an answerology rhetorical award for this one! :D
