This is fun, and I’m pretty sure you and I are the only ones reading it….Thanks for mentioning the changes I’ve made to the theme. That being said, I’m firing back…I can’t resist.
So someone out there took exception to a bunch of things with my @thens WordPress theme. Rather than bringing them to my attention, even after I’d written a comment on his blog, the author of davidjmurray.org (Mr. Murray, I presume) decided to flame me about his concerns, rather than informing me of them in a way in which I could take steps to fix the theme. Thankfully, by flaming me, I was at least able to figure out what he wanted changed, and have done so in Version 1.1 of the theme. Now, the gentleman decided to ‘spam’ my comment to him, and proceeded to claim that there was ‘no documentation’ available on the theme. Now, as any wordpress user knows, the URL for the homepage of the theme is right there in the stylesheet. Mine’s no exception. So, besides proving an inability to read, Mr. Murray has demonstrated a quick temper and an inability to distinguish ‘tracking’ code from AdSense code.
Then, after I suggested that Mr. Murray was perhaps being a bit unfair in spamming my comment (does he understand the difference between ‘spam’ and ‘delete’???), since I had merely given him contact info to suggest any changes he might want made on the theme (apparently, he does), he announced on his blog that I considered it his problem to fix the theme. That’s not exactly true. I merely request (quite reasonably, I believe), that people either tell me what they don’t like, or fix it themselves. Passive-aggressively flaming something on your own blog does not quite meet either of those criteria, and most importantly, what does it accomplish? In fact, here’s the transcript of the comment that Mr. Murray ‘spammed.’ Note, hilariously, that Mr. Murray’s original post replying to my comment (as of 2pm) accuses me of using ‘the big sword’ of ‘blackmale,’ but that our spelling champ figured out that that was not only a typo, but also somewhat of an innuendo. Thankfully, Mr. Murray sees no shame in altering his reality to fit his preconceived notions, so by 3pm that ‘mistake’ was appropriately removed.
Wow, you’re not very nice, to say the least. If you had a problem with the theme, you should have told me. I made every effort to be friendly here, and yet you deleted my comment. Now, here’s the thing–if you don’t want ads, remove that code. The theme I modified (NFO Overload) has that same ad code in it, which I believe pays that guy–I’ll be removing it now, though, since it’s a valid criticism and I can see how, if you’re not really comfortable editing the code, you’d be frustrated by it. Now, I don’t know what you mean about documentation–the install instructions are on the page, and if you had any other questions, you could’ve asked on the blog–there is a comment page that I DON’T CENSOR like you do.
