The biggest insult.

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!

    All true. However, contrarian views are supposed to attract the crabs, so when you cannot even attract them with a piece of smelly meat, it is pretty sad, indeed depressing if you just want a good argument.
    Enter Monty.

    Maybe, or the people who read the blog like the writer, and so refrain from saying anything … or, they just missed the entry. Another instance of “clapping with one hand…” 🙂
