Sycophancy is a race to the bottom

Protip for people considering sycophancy as an advancement strategy — someone else can always sycophant harder.

And this is one of the many reasons I do not understand sycophancy; it is a race to the bottom and history tells us, there is only room for one but the pit is bottomless.

The advantages gained this way are not worth it, even from a purely rational perspective.
