That would be a good explanation of this aspect but that is usually not
what you read there.

I understand the guess but that is at least not my experience. If I tell
authors about their mistakes they are usually happy that I help them
improve their article.
Maybe the main reason for writing is not feeling qualified but the wish
to help. Or they feel there are people even less qualified than they
themselves and write for those but do not believe that they are close to
the upper end of knowledge. Maybe the reaction depends on how they
assess the knowledge of the one who tries to correct them. The from
address of those of my emails may help there. ;-)
I suggest: Just give it a try.
