45. There is no reason to assign blame to
anyone.

Rudeness is an act of one feeling Superior over another. It's snide and can incorporates a large ego. Watch snarky comments in General discussion for an idea of how much ego is pushing the statements. Watch reaction to such comments (myself included)

Right action (8 fold path) would prevent one from absorbing a negative comment and internalizing it, potentially taking it personally.

Right action would neither assign rudeness nor blame, it would merely pass the comment up as "past" and not of the mindfulness of
"now"
