Actually, when I remember right, there where three issues, which 
I closed, because I considered them invalid (and in each of them 
I gave a reason, why I was doing so), which where reopened by the 
reporter. [1] [2] and [3]. I still consider two of them invalid, 
only one of them [3] is from you and maybe I got something wrong 
there, but as long, as I do understand this issue like I do at 
the moment I judge it invalid. The other one from you [2] got a 
separate thread in this forum. After you clearified it there, I 
understood, what you wanted and filed a PR which exactly does, 
what you want (and it would probably allready be merged, if dup 
would not have been down). And for reference, in [1] the reporter 
arguments, that we should add a bug, for consistency with an 
other bug; at least, that's my perception.

I found several bug reports, where I think, that they could be 
closed too, but where I felt, that I cannot decide upon. In most 
cases I wrote a question, asking for clearification, sometimes I 
just ignored them. But well yes, I might have made mistakes. 
That's normal, because I'm a human being.
