LOL!

well, Roberts somewhat critical. But without u, the forum would be less coloful! Frankly speaking, people here did very good job on translatING 我这人比上不足,比下有余! E.G.:
yeah, i admit i am nothing, but i do have my own virtues.
Me? Well, I'm worse than some, but better than many!
Oh, well. I may not be the best, but certainly not the worst!
I'm worse than many, but better than some!
under one but above millions!
TERRIFIC!

比上不足,比下有余 - here is an idiomatic expression - FAIR TO MIDDLING

FAIR TO MIDDLING
(informal) less than satisfactory but not really bad; moderate in number, force, or quality.

Examples:
He was never more than a fair to middling student and he was lucky to get as good a degree as he did.

于无声处。。。

我对这个话题很感兴趣,还有没有更多的见解?

说出来,即便比上不足,尚可比下有余嘛!哈,哈,活学活用。
