Again, I think the way it actually works should be changed, and I think
it's useful for this *technical* considerations of mine to be held in

I have added further information, i.e. more reasons for which I think my
wish is meaningful, every time I reopened the bug. How can you possibly
say I abused the BTS? And what nice conclusions did you add to the bts
to close the bug besides very cozy "don't fuck with this"-like messages?

Sorry for pissing in your territory.
I still think the way you handled this case (and this final happy end)
should need some review by other people of the community.
Because you may have created whatever BTS you want, and I may also be
grateful to you for that, but you are, in a way or another, part of a
community. Which may or may not share your ideas, and which may
sometimes be worth of more respect.
