It doesn't matter what you write or have written or who you are. The
people who are allowed to have the final say on the state of a bug in
a package is well defined and has been explained before. In this case,
the CTTE has the final say on the state of this bug, irregardless of
whather their decision is correct or incorrect.

The issue is not the original reopening of the bug; the issue is the
continued reopening of the bug. Since the desire of the people in
charge of the bugs in the ctte package has been made manifest, it
should be respected.
See http://lists.debian.org/debian-devel/2006/12/msg00303.html for a
relatively recent explication of the control@ policy, and what will be
done in cases of abuse.
In any event, now that all parties to this bug are once again aware of
the policy, I look forward to not having to address this issue again.
