As a purely gedanken experiment, I might submit that the opposite is also true:

The comments like that (a comment from someone who has nothing for or against the argument and only stopped by to criticise the tone of voice in which two members who know each other for 10+ years talk to each other) - that discourages qualified answers. people who know the answers stop answering because someone will "report them", so they just stop. And then forum fills up with very helpful and kind answers from folks who don't know the answer and don't even know how to learn the answer.
