My first ever publication with a new take on an old problem, showing that issues that other researchers tend to ignore were actually important in explaining some practical problems. I never felt it dismissed the other concerns, but instead showed that something else could be important. Imagine my surprise when I met an older researcher who said that we were now in conflict, and there was a controversy. That researcher had been working on similar issues for a long time, and never saw the point in my paper. So a controversy was ginned up.
The sad thing is that no one but that other person ever knew about the controversy. And I still read papers by that person ignoring the point in our paper. Sad, sad, sad. And pointless.
