Indeed, I agree. This was something I didn't consider when writing the bot.

I want to fix this issue, but I'm not sure when I'll get around to fixing it. 
So far it was developed internally, but I just created a request on Gerrit to 
let you review the code:

I think it should be very doable to extend the bot to check if the last 
transition was a re-open, in which case it could just drop a message and not 
close the bug again.
