"Because that's stupid" is not a valid reason for closing out bugs.
Title: But what if that was the justification for building the feature in the first place?
Snarky: "Because that's stupid" is not a valid reason for closing out bugs.
The product manager/developer relationship is inherently tense in my experience. I think it's because developers, ahead of the technological curve when it comes to building software products, recommend features that go over like a lead balloon when pitched to the product team. Not being the 'business' experts in the organization, they are then left to implement what in their minds are inferior or *gasp!* obsolete solutions.
Having then to go back and fix bugs in said features (arguably, their own fault), it can be hard to resist adding a few snarky comments in the bug tracker.
