Really?  Doing such a thing would definitely get the attention of the listener.  If someone said such a thing to me, it would be like getting hit on the thumb with a hammer.  I'd get very curious about what the speaker was saying (or not saying).

 

Indeed, where I read it didn't mention anything about intonation, so I'd bet the way one hides or highlights such spoken cue would along make the difference.
