I see nothing wrong with the latter two:
 "Don't use that"
 "Switch distros!"

That is perfectly valid advice. You need various things in your
distribution to help GNOME development. I would not advise anyone to use
Ubuntu anymore when they want to get involved with GNOME.

GNOME should run on any distribution, but if a distribution has a big
focus and is known to be problematic to do development upon, advice on
that is a good thing.

The first 2 statements are not good though:
 "That's not a real distro"
 "That's not maintained by real GNOME people"

Though even the latter I could explain in a more 'assume mean well' way.

Hope that if you get bad behaviour, you do speak with those people
