One of my papers was accepted to a conference. There is this one thing that everyone asks about, including more than one of the reviewers, and other people I've talked to about my work. The answer to the question is sort of disappointing, and substantially deflates the balloon of my work. What is the best way to approach the question when people inevitably ask about it at the conference?
I don't think my advisor wants to talk about the thing, and he doesn't want to incorporate the reviewer comments that were about the thing, either.
Edit: To clarify, the question that people ask is something that most people ask out of curiosity, and it doesn't seem like a weakness until they know the answer to the question. I think if they knew the answer to the question, the paper might have gotten rejected.
