Is it appropriate for me to contact each of the listed users, stating my reasons for disagreeing?
No, please don't do that. If you edit a recently closed post to try and improve it, it's automatically put in a queue to be reviewed and possibly reopened. If that still doesn't work, you can click the "flag" link under the post and choose "in need of moderator intervention".
Your question seems fine, but was a bit verbose; I shortened it while trying not to remove any relevant information that the people answering it would need. It's reopened now.
