Someone may say something because of anger or because of ego or whatever. In fact, the way and the extent Axl talked about Slash and against a reunion came across more as a manifestation of hurt and bitter feelings about an unfinished business than of moving on. 

There are sources and indications which confirm Axl's comment about a reunion being, if not in the cards, at least not out of the question for him. Even Axl himself in 2011 alluded to the circumstances under which a reunion might work, which means that it had it worked in his head and it wasn't something that he didn't ever consider.

This, i remember it interview, he considered an reunion, just him, Slash and Duff. He put out Izzy and Steven of the reunion.

I don't remember him alluding to anyting in 2011. I'd love it if you could refresh my memory. But I do remember this. When Slash said he'd be willing to do a reunion if Axl apologised Axl had this to say: “Contrary to anyone’s claims there are no concrete plans, nor were there ever for a tour and certainly not to replace anyone in the band, beyond a collection of random ideas thrown out by various individuals without any real foundation.”

To me it sounds like a big no-no. According to Axl it is a "random idea" thrown out by "individuals without any real foundation".

I understand that some of you guys are more lenient towards Axl changing his mind. I'm a little biased because I defended him passionately when people were giving him flack for refusing to reunite. I was never a Slash hater, quite the contrary, but I was definitely in Axl's "camp".

Also he didn't just dismiss reunion on a whim, he also did it in interviews where he had the questions in advance and lots of time to think about, like the Del James interview.

Would you consider a reunion with the 'Appetite' or 'Illusions' lineups?
No

No room for debate whatsoever. I guess I understand not everyone's going to see it eye to eye with me. I accept it.

I must say I agree wholeheartedly with this intepretation: "In fact, the way and the extent Axl talked about Slash and against a reunion came across more as a manifestation of hurt and bitter feelings about an unfinished business than of moving on."

But I still don't see it as justifiable. He's not a little kid. But he sure acts like it.
