Default Please stop bashing other themes as a way to praise your current favorite

My point is this:

If a theme is awesome, then it can stand on it's own merits.
It is unecessary to bash other themes in order to demonstrate how well done another theme is.

Saying a theme so much better than all the themes that are so bad they make you cry is not praise.
Praise is saying a theme is so good it almost makes you want to cry, but your too busy making music with it instead, because the theme is that good.

Indeed.

Every theme that is made is an expansion of the choice available to everyone. If one user likes it, then that's case closed : it has value. Even if no one likes it, that's still a themer gaining experience and maybe their next theme will be killer. There's simply no way to rationalise any of this as anything other than positive.

Every user does a little competition in their own head : which theme do I think is best? That is a luxury that comes from having a choice. More happy and engaged themers means more choice.

Agreed! It’s nice to have so many options and I enjoy checking out every theme I can get my hands on. For me, there’s always something to learn and unique / creative ideas that I would’ve never thought of...

Get over it, have you never used the internet before, you sound like one of those tools who moves in next to a pub and then complains about noise, the internet is full of arseholes (typing) deal with it.

I don't know if you have the same expression in english : "tous les goûts sont dans la nature" which, directly tranlated gives "all tastes are in nature".

I suppose you know how people are...
If someone loves one theme and use it, he will maybe say it.
If someone likes one theme but won't use it, he won't say it.
If someone don't like one theme at all, he'd probably say it. In that last case, you have three kind of reviews : the one that just says he don't like that theme, the one that explains why he don't like that theme and the one that bashes. In my opinion, that last one doesn't deserve to be read : it's the kind of poor guys that thinks that trying to destroy somebody else justifies its existence.

I'm just grateful for the huge choice and the incredible generosity of all of the hard-working theme creators herein. It just so happens that my two favorite themers are participating in this thread. So... thank you for your gifts, gentleman. Huzzah.

And if I run across praise being lavished upon a theme that I just can't stand, I just scratch my head and move on. It's simple.

I mean, no offense, but isn't you making this post kinda contradictory?

You are complaining about a particular behavior as well, my dude
