    what does this sentence imply?
    The people who respond "no" are being kind of ridiculous.

    A speaker of this sentence is strongly and negatively criticizing people whose response is "no". It's a strong criticism because, in this particular sentence, some people would find the use of the term "ridiculous" rather offensive.
