Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I'm in a conflict with the asker of a certain question about writing tutorials for Mozilla: how to write tutorials for programming sites

Together with some other people, I have closed this question as being Off Topic, as it is. However, OP begs for an unclose. What should I do/say? Seems he doesn't care if someone closes it except for when I do :/

After becoming aware of this one I closed and deleted his original question (which was a dupe and way off the beaten path for any SE site). I did leave a comment explaining the error of his ways but you just can't tell some users some of the time. – Kev Jun 5 '11 at 12:01

The question has been closed after 5 users voted to close the question, which is the higher number of users required to close a question; it has not been the decision taken from two users.
In both the cases, if a question has been wrongly closed, 5 users (or less, if one of the users is a moderator) can vote to re-open the question; the OP can vote to re-open his/her question too.

Begging any of the users who closed the question to re-open it is needless; any user who can vote to close a question can also vote to re-open it (and they don't need to be the same users).

I would say don't say anything. If you think that effectively the question should have not been closed, or you changed your mind (e.g. because you are now giving the question a different interpretation), then you can vote to re-open it.
