That is a development culture issue than no tool can fix. Reviewboard is great 
for discussing changes in the hands of people who value that sort of 
interaction. It also can be used to deliver only nitpicking in a non-
constructive manner. The difference in experience comes down to the what the 
people using it value.

Where reviewboard is not good enough is in making it easy to quickly try the 
patch (bi-directional scm integration) ... but the commenting and discussion 
features are pretty much as good as it gets.
