How ridiculous is this?

I submitted the credits merge request seen below, and was declined for the same old lazy stupidity of "unable to verify," also seen below.  Does anyone believe the unable to verify is appropriate, and does anyone agree with me that in this case "unable to verify," is a lazy, untrue, stupid thing?  Although it might not seem like I will respect the community's judgment on this, I will respect it, and will try not to complain if I am overruled by consensus.  Comments and conclusions please?
Nathan Mikita (I) is listed as cinematographer for REMEMBER ME YOUNG, and Nathan Mikita (III) is listed as editor for REMEMBER ME YOUNG, There are not two different people with the same name getting credits for the same short film, they are quite obviously the same person. Please combine into Nathan Mikita (I).
ReasonUnable to verify.

Hello trivwhiz,

Can you help us providing the 18-digits submission reference number? in order to take a look for you!

You can find the submission number on your Contribution History page.

Hello trivwhiz, 

Thanks for providing the submission reference number! The duplicated credit has already been removed from the title and the name merged into "Nathan Mikita".

Cheers!

@Fran​ Thanks!  I am curious about something, when you fix a problem, like you did for this one, does the original poster (meaning me in this case) get credit for the original submission from IMDB in their annual submissions?

We typically submit on your behalf so you do get credit for the original submission from IMDB in their annual submissions. For this specific case, when I worked on your post, another user had already done the merge so I could not do it on your behalf, but this is just for rare occasions like this. For most of the cases we like to make sure you do get credit for it.
