Yes if it's used without waiting for an answer (or even even more
without requesting further clarification) it might make one feel
shot down. And usually it's used too quickly. Most bug
resolutions should probably be only done when some care or
communication was done to check that it's the correct resolution,
to avoid resolution ping-pong.

I think a keyword would be appropriate. It would nicely fit with
the "Abandoned?" keyword: first add needmoreinfo, if no answer
for 6 month add "Abandoned?", after further 6 month resolve
