Look at it from a theme author's point of view. You've already
reviewed it. It's marked "not-accepted" and "closed".

That doesn't suggest some form of "finality" to you?

So what does the theme author do? He reopens it and adds comments.
This is the way things happen in the core trac, after all. People
reopen it when they begin discussing it or have more to add.

You going and instantly closing it again, summarily rejecting his
points by giving some link to a document somewhere else... well, that
doesn't leave a really good taste in his mouth, does it? It doesn't
show that anybody is listening, or cares, or wants to help. It's just
rejection, absolute and final.

Of course they're going to get angry and upset when being treated like that.
