Yes, we have a conventional wisdom. I don't think that's a bad thing, per se, but we could get better at using it right.

The point of saying "this is something we've discussed before" is not to say "this conversation is closed." Rather, it should be read as "don't be surprised if your arguments have been made before." If that's not apparent, then obviously we have a communication problem.
