The Cambridge Dictionary gives such an example sentence for the word 'troubleshooting':
He’s very good at troubleshooting because he knows these computers as well as anybody.
Judging from the context, we can figure out that 'as well as anybody' means he knows these computers very well.
The problem is, practically, not many people know much about computers, so if we literally comprehend the phrase 'as well as anybody' out of context, this may mean he knows little about those computers.
My question is, can 'as well as anybody' be used to mean 'bad/badly'? If it can, which meaning is more common, good (well) or bad (badly)?
