I don't question that.  However, there should be a step between having
an opinion, and implementing that opinion, namely *discussing it* with
the responsible person(s).

Of course not, but it does mean he deserves some respect, and I found
the OP pretty disrespectful.

My major point is that the OP should have discussed this first before
reopening all of those bugs.  

My secondary point ( but I don't have equally strong feeling about
this one ), is that I'm not sure Christopher's closing of those bugs
was unjustified, because he has no time to personally look into fixing
them upstream, and therefore, there is nothing he could really do
about them, except for periodically checking whether they are already
fixed upstream, which seems like a pretty useless activity imho.  If
the reporter is really interested, he can easily check the upstream
bug reports himself.
