You're over-reacting. That just means he (the assignee) will not fix the bug. 
If he had the power to close down all discussion, your email wouldn't exist 
and I wouldn't be typing this reply right now.

Also do note that comments after the bug being closed are still received just 
as they were before. You can contribute more information to the report so that 
a solution can be found.

Sure there is: the bug report. Comments are not disabled in closed bug 
reports. It just means Zeno is no longer looking for a solution. But if you 
provide one that works for everyone...
