I'm always amused, and a little confused, when people mistake "blunt" and "pragmatic" and "unemotional" language for "angry" and "hostile".

I can be hostile, just ask my sister about the fights we've had as kids (one involving slamming a door through a wall ... yes, through). I've never gotten anywhere near that feeling here, nor have I used the internet conventions that are typical for expressing such feelings.

But people's reactions to emotionless text tend to say an awful lot more about the person reacting than about the text itself.
