Otto, you didnt have a valid discussion, you threw your weight into a 
situation, it is not your place to reopen the ticket, to have been valid you 
should have stated your claim, it would be remarked and reopened by the 
theme-admin, i.e. cais.  THEN your obligatory asshole nature procluded once 
again that things were flawed and you would see the process removed, didn't 
you learn from last time?
