[theme-reviewers] Can't upload theme due to Gravatar validation problem

Took a look at the theme.

You're calling the comments_template function, but you don't actually
have a comments.php. This means that you're using the theme-compat
version of comments.php, which is not supportable. It has this
specifically in the code:

else // Backward compat code will be removed in a future release
		require( ABSPATH . WPINC . '/theme-compat/comments.php');

That backward compatible code is probably unacceptable. Include a
comments.php yourself, or ditch comments.
