[theme-reviewers] Discussion

Once again, I have to bring this up.

If you refuse to have a *discussion* with the theme authors, then you
are not doing a review. You are merely blocking the theme author from
joining the community.

When a theme author presents a valid argument, even when it's in trac,
then mere rejection of his argument without consideration of any sort
is *VERY* frustrating. Merely saying that that is the way the rules
are now is not discussion, it is mere rejection.

This is how we're treating people trying to join the community?

If somebody brings up valid points, then it should be the job of the
theme reviewer to consider those points and to apply common sense. It
is their job to bring up these points to this list, or to wherever
discussion is taking place among the reviewers. Merely rejecting the
points immediately and closing the ticket is an extremely poor way to
handle this sort of thing.

The theme review guidelines are not the source of all knowledge. They
are not, and should not be, considered absolute.
