I've done exactly this myself. It rarely seems to lead to anything good, other than the occasional moment of smug satisfaction which comes from knowing that you're much more successful than the people who used to bully you at school (but it's not really satisfaction, because didn't you know, deep down, that they'd never amount to anything anyway?)
