QuestionTester's authority Pin

How much authority can a tester have?
I'm a little confused on the scene I'm watching.

I see emails flying across from a tester almost with a CEO level authority, like:
"These are critical bugs fix it ASAP!".

Btw, it;s are not as critical as it's claimed to be. And the developer assigned to this is more experienced than the tester issuing these instructions.

I always believed testers role is to test, find the results and log them in Bug tracking tool.
Should they be allowed to send these "Directional" commands?

I see it very commanding. Sometimes it's very ironic to see, the hard-working developer race is often mistreated. Right from the dumb product manager to a tester anybody is able to command and react on a mistake done by the developer.

Should I stop the tester from sending direct instructions to the developer?
