Think a better take away there is just because someone is picking at your code digging out design flaws/bugs/whatever (you know, the point of review), doesn't make them an arse or rude.
Getting reviewed can suck, and reviewing can suck somewhat since bad patches you really don't want to keep kicking the crap out of (but you have to since that's the point of review); nor can you save yourself the time and state "this isn't worth the gain/cost ratio" without coming off as an ass, even if it may be true...
Other chunks of the thread where the dude got pissed at being called an arse, meh, initiating point of discussion... not so much.
