Nope, unambiguously rude. This kind of negativity is why this community is worse than it used to be.

Agreed. I feel like I see this in nearly every discussion now.

Pardon me for barging in on this discussion but I find the use of "Nope" in a manner not humorous, ironic, or otherwise deceptively rendered to be quite rude indeed. I do not question your motivations but maybe we are — many of us — to blame for the ills you decry.

Are you serious? "Nope" is just informal, it's not any more or less rude than "no".

Yep. Rude.
