And he goes on saying:
"All of us encourage people regularly to PM us if they'd like to discuss a thread closure and instead you just started a new thread and rudely called us out publicly instead of addressing the problem through the established channels we have set up for these purposes. If you'd like to discuss individual thread closures, please contact the mod that did so or the senior staff overseeing them"
But this is a very accurate description of what I did. I PM'ed the mod who closed the thread, and that did not result in re-opening of the thread because the mod wasn't sure whether or not I broke the rules ("clearly violating the guidelines" does not make a mod doubt). And I didn't call you out "rudely", at least not per intention, which is why I said if you'd rather keep this private you could remove it from this public thread and store it somewhere private, like a PM.
But if you feel I offended you, I apologize, and you are welcome to remove anything admin/thread/closing-related from this thread and leave the original questions and answers to remain.
