Those are good, Anon.
I also think that being just plain rude for no reason qualifies as bashing.
However, if someone asks for opinions and doesnt hear what they want to hear from someone, that's NOT bashing. Also, if someone asks a question based on a series of poor decisions they've made and asks for advice, and any truly useful advice is going to criticize those poor decisions, that's NOT bashing as long as the responder is polite about it.
