I blame language barriers mostly.
Yeah that would make sense as most of the hostility seems to come from the connotations of words used - something that is difficult to preserve across translations at times even for a modestly skilled linguist. It is however something that's very easy to get wrong and accidentally insert insulting or accusatory connotations when none were there in the original language.
