Often used by internet and IRL white knights or attention whores to gain popularity/ego stroking, used when an opportunity presents itself to put someone down.

Saccharite comments are usually emotionally exploitative and entirely unnecessary to the intent of discussion.
Saccharite comments in the writers experience, tend to be the result of a lack of knowledge of the context or information, a derogatory expression of mount stupid.

The word is derived from saccharin, a type of artificial sweetener that's bad for you in large quantities.
