I started this recent topic about saying 'you're wrong' causing offence to people. The discussion is very interesting and I really appreciate all the answers. Most if not all commenters say the phrase in question does sound, in some degree, rude or confrontational.
Now there's another big question: do you think this is biased due to what kind of people are active in this community? If somebody made an offline survey in some English-speaking country with broad representation of respondents, do you think there'd be a difference?
