Perhaps it is just a difference in terminology. Yes, any friction that is not tangent to the groove (with the straight tonearm) will cause a force vector which will causes the stylus to "attempt" to climb the groove walls. Because the bearing is fixed, this translates into distortion (mistracking). The amount of distortion will dependent on the stylus profile.

The force vector caused by a normal pivoted tonearm misalignment is much less than a skating force vector because the headshell offset is summed with the cartridge misalignment. I now know where you were going with your discussion - thx.
