Well yes, I have had it pointed out to me that you can be right but
still state your case in such a way as to get everybody's back up.
Furthermore, I've dealt with people that made me say, "Okay, I know
he/she was right, but did he/she need to be such a [deleted expletive]
about it?"

Still, would it be possible to point out that someone was falsifying
their qualifications in a civil, dignified, professional manner, without
being a [deleted expletive]? Or does the very act of doing so publicly
constitute being a [deleted expletive]?

Yes. To put it bluntly, even if you're right, if you act like an ass,
you're in the wrong.
