Why aren't rejected matches reset when a profile is changed?

Just asked a question recently about the criteria for rejected matches and such.  The answer also addressed my question about whether rejected matches were re-set when a profile is updated ... the answer was 'no' ... WHAT? ... if someone updates a profile and changes the reason I rejected that match then I want another shot at accepting the match ... this is just stupid ... fix this!  What if someone made an error and input the wrong parents ... I reject ... they edit ... and I never see this profile again ... stupid, stupid, stupid!!!

I don't really see how that could be done in a way that makes sense. If every time a profile was changed, the rejected merges went away, there would be no point in rejecting merges at all, because they'd just constantly be deleted.

You can always look at the rejected matches of a profile at the bottom of the page. Also, if you go to Find -> Pending Merges, set it to show only merges on your Watchlist, and then select rejected matches, you can see all the rejected matches on your Watchlist. And when you do a Find Matches search for all the profiles on your Watchlist, you can choose to include rejected matches in the search.
