How are you not supposed to react to a 0-12 adc telling you what to do or a 2-13 support thinking he is the cat's pajamas.
How is 'stop feeding' productive advice? That's pure rage, yo. Plain and simple.
You think the guy at the other end of the computer (who is obviously having a miserable game), is going to read 'stop feeding' and be like:
what I'm doing wrong. Thanks for the tip! I'll just... stop
Next time, try 'Bot lane, just play passive for now- we're letting them snowball. We'll catch you back up by midgame." or "Hey (*jungler*), when you get a sec, could you camp bot for a bit? We're going to have problems later if they keep snowballing from here and I think mid and I will be fine without the ganks."
Or better yet, if his lane is behind and you know they're not going to be able to turn it around, offer if they'd like to swap lanes with you.
But don't ever mistake "stop feeding" as constructive criticism. Or anything but what it is: the petulant whining of someone who is so self-involved that he'd prefer to vent his rage at his teammates rather than endure his tribulations stoically, help his team overcome them, and then carry them to victory.
