Feedback is part of a constructive process that involves collaboration and trust building.
Feedback is a giving action, which should come from a horn of plenty.
“No” is the beginning of a destructive process that involves competition and deception.
“No” is a taking action, that comes from a position of scarcity.
Feedback is active, but a “no”—particularly the ones provided “in your best interests,” or “to help”—are passive acts of resistance.
By the way, don’t confuse feedback from the crowd with a “no.” 
Also, don’t confuse a “no” from an individual as feedback that reflects the crowd’s opinion of your idea/work/project.
