You are right that the outrageous reviews stand out, but I have been fortunate to have received many thoughtful reviews (including a fresh rejection!). One stands out. On my first submission in grad school, the manuscript was rejected and a reviewer suggested a particular variation on a key experiment. We did it and the result changed the conclusions of the paper. I was grateful to have not published something that was not correct. (We thanked the reviewer in the acknowledgments once the paper was accepted.) I try to keep this in mind, both as an author and as a reviewer.
