Surely in this day and age of total and transparent communication, putting out a contrarian view, and having no-one respond is the greatest insult we can make.

Putting out a view that is deliberately contrarian takes guts, as you will attract criticism, sometimes unreasonable and even personal, so you need a thick skin, and to be in an environment where there are genuinely no repercussions to the venting of the view.

However, putting out a view you know runs against the conventional wisdom, and being ignored…… what an insult!
