If it's done with a mean spirit then yeah it's non productive.
One thing I hate is when a user creates a thread that poses a question and then never enters the thread again to participate. If one throws a ball in the air that is covered in gunk then they should try and catch it too.
Rather than sit back and let the fur fly.
The problem is sometimes its hard to determine if its done in jest or malice. On your second point, I have been guilty of that before, the "helmets for pitchers" thread, sometimes you just can't get back to the thread, or the posters already said what you were going to.
