Should I take your response to mean you believe the theme author should realize the use of text ads is a big mistake*, perform a (very public) mea culpa over it, and then pull the ads from all current and future themes?

Otherwise I don't follow the purpose behind the reference.
I  think Charles flagged a possible case of hypocrisy, but I
have  always  stuck with the assumption that each person  is
permitted  to make impulsive mistakes, especially at the age
of 21.


Exactly. And if Charles had bothered some reading up a bit on the
background ( Sorry Charles! ),
he shouldn't have made that reference.

It might be difficult to judge. Maybe the defensive side of the story was neglected for brevity.

Best wishes,


PS  -  I  strongly  agree with your previous  post  on  this
thread.  Several  valid points were made. To add  just  one:
'third-party' links that are bought for SEO purposes subvert
otherwise-fine  SERP's.  That  in itself is  an  abomination
which  harbours  the death of an Open and democratic Web  --
one of those aims that WordPress, being standards-compliant,
Free and suitable for all, strives to address.
