I keep trying to write longer, in-depth answers to your question.

The short answer is: no, I wouldn't reply.  Because it's not my job to fix people's dumbness.

Just happened to me with my latest book. Got the email from them Sunday after I submitted the files for review. I sent them what they requested, but have not heard anything back and the book is still suppressed in the CS dashboard.

I blandly reply to every email, even the ones that say "Sir, youre homosexual lifestyle means you will burn in hell for eternitey."

Of course with my real fans, I respond more. But no, I never justify or defend or explain a thing: "Thank you for your comments. I appreciate your sharing them with me."

Look, there's a lot of people with a lot of opinions and doomsdaying here.

There are also people trying to be positive and support you.

But the only thing that matters is do you still love it? And I'm not necessarily talking about writing all the time, because lets be honest, sometimes its a grind and it sucks. But do you love creating stories, worlds, seeing characters come to life, and all that magical [crap]? Do you love seeing your world come to life, and sometimes when you look back on what you've written does it make you feel good?

Because if so, just don't stop. And change your definition of success from "I'm gonna be a famous/rich/successful author" to "I want to keep doing what I love and study the craft and enjoy the process every day." Often success is the byproduct of the latter.

I read something pretty brilliant that said [paraphrasing]: your dream career isn't the one where you love the best parts, it's the one where you enjoy the challenge of the worst parts. Because most careers are made up of lots of challenging [crap] and a few awesome things.

I was pretty lucky that my first novel exploded when it came out. Since then it has died down a lot. There was a pretty serious come-down for me with that. But this [crap] is about the long game. I'm still chugging along, I'm loving the third book which is almost done even though it  p*ss es me off sometimes, and most of all I can't wait to get it out there for people to read. Even if it were only a few friends and family who enjoy my work, I'd still be excited to get it in their hands.

This business, like many business, has a ton of [crap] you can't control. Focus on what you can, which is how good your writing is, what is the most fun for you to write, and then also what sort of marketing/exposure you can do.

Hope that helps/makes sense.

"We've developed a unique publishing philosophy that we're passionate about."

They sure have. They are passionate about separating you from your money, and likely your copyright.

If payment up front from you isn't enough to make you run, what is?

No advance.
You pay them to publish the book.
You pay for editing.
You pay for the cost of doing business, from which they profit, but not you.
You have to abide by a non-compete clause.

This seems silly.

I tried to publish my third book through CreateSpace and they responded with concerns over my rights to the content. They said I had four days to prove I'm the author. I responded immediately, of course, but it's been three days and I've heard no response. I asked for an update, but got no response to that either.

Has anyone else had this happen with CreateSpace?

Very frustrating considering the other two books in the series are already published on my CreateSpace account and the third book is already live on Amazon.

someone contacts me because they have misunderstood, you have every right to reply and clarify

Sure. You have every right to respond to every single email, and even respond to reviews, if you want. The thing some are trying to get you to understand is that it's a pointless exercise, and will likely lead to bad feelings if you try to correct someone. Do you really want an Internet war because someone didn't "understand" why you wrote something? Really? And don't you have more books to write?

I'm of the opinion that you make up some general responses to things like this. Thank the reader for taking the time to read your work, say you're sorry it wasn't the book for them, send it out and then forget about it. If the person responds with an argument, send to spam, block the ISP, and then forget about it.

Or you can email them back and correct them on whatever it is they're complaining about, and we'll see you on the other side of that black hole.

I'm entering that mushy middle part of the campaign where page views and time on Hot and Trending are dropping like rocks.  I'm trying some Facebook ads today, which seem to be helping, as my darling Hexborn is, once more, designated "hot" after an abysmal day yesterday.  I'm also on a blog tour, which seems to be doing precious little.  I'm considering trying booksbutterfly, which I learned about from Lincoln's book, but it's hard to know whether it is worth the money.  If the Facebook ads keep performing, it might be better just to keep putting $5 a day into that.  And I know that even with views and nominations, I could easily get rejected on marketing or genre grounds.  What to do, what to do?
Overall, I'm finding the process a little more stressful than I anticipated.  I thought I could just let it run and not obsess, but apparently not.  I have appreciate all your comments and wisdom as I've been lurking around.  Best of luck to all.
