[theme-reviewers] Don't close tickers as "newer version" unless you really mean it.

I have another suggestion: For non-admins, please do not assign ticket to
other reviewer.

I plan to review a ticket this afternoon. Now I have 2 tickets because
someone assigned one to me. Knowing what happened for the weekend. I have
no problem to review both. But I thought I should let everyone know.
