Don't be afraid to go against the grain and it's even better if you can provide solid reasoning for why you disagree. Maybe these people just don't have the information that you have and you can help them become better informed. I know I always appreciate it if I'm corrected when I have the wrong information.
I cannot support Sentium's comment enough - call it sheep mentality or bandwagoning - but it is one of the most stifling of activities prevalent on these boards. It is so refreshing to see a statement start out, "Well, I don't see it that way because . . . ." - or - "Here is something that I read that to my mind doesn't support this analysis to this point." It might even be as simple as asking a question like, "But what about this?"
Right or wrong, injecting a different slant on things is really helpful to insights and expanded discussions. If we all say and believe the same things, you can be assured we are missing something.
