Pay attention. See below.

Pay attention, see below.

Actually, I am not. If you take a look at the thread, I'm just a 
commentator, same as anyone else. I've done 0 work, I happen to like the 
theme and the idea.

You tell me I'm having an emotional response, and direct this entire 
message at me as though I'm the author of the theme? That's pretty 
funny. You accuse me of shooting the messenger, and yet all I'm doing is 
correcting Morbus - AGAIN - which, I will point out, is done in very 
much the style that Morbus would have done it to me.

So, next time you wish to be mean to me on the list, I humbly request 
that choose things I've actually said to be mean about. There are plenty 
of things I do and say that are worthy of attacking, this one just 
happens to not be one of them, since, and I want to make this abundantly 
clear since apparently it's not at all obvious:

I have Nothing To Do With This Theme. I just happen to kind of like it.
