Lloyd, I just don't get this:

My guess is that the thread would then either get fully derailed or at least split into some sort of two threaded monster with one discussing the actual value of Ciaffone's coaching/coaching in general and the other discussing why the disclaimer's there and whether you treat "your competition" unfairly.

I really don't see why you think this would happen.

At worst a disclaimer makes the review a little redundant.

People tend to notice odd things in posts. I would be surprised to find no discussion of why it's there, in particular if it was put there by a mod and not the OP. As for the discussion of Mason and Sklansky treating other authors unfairly, that's flaired up on a few occasions primarily in Books (well then it was books/software) when one of the two names above give negative reviews of non-2+2 books. The Lee Jones thread comes to mind.

I personally think that being very critical of authors in general is a good thing. As an example, given Mason's positive review of Kill Phil (even if it changes near the end) I plan to pick it up. If he was like many in the publishing industry, I'm thinking of many player/authors here, his positive review would be worthless due to good reviews of books I know to be bad. Similarly, as someone who's first two books were Ken Warren's Winning player teaches hold'em (or whatever it is) and Phil Helmuth's book, I'm certainly behind the effort to not lead people to bad advice. Unfortunately, others don't see it this way and things could head that direction.
