[theme-reviewers] Can I have another theme to review?

Here are all the tickets by developer "rahulsarees":

Thankfully, he only has one other Theme, and it also isn't approved.

I just did a search, and found this same trick used elsewhere.

All-Green 1.0.4 (approved, by me *blush*):
Beauty Dots 1.0.6 (approved):

Both of these Themes are by "paydaydesigns":

*1) Blacklist both "rahulsarees" and "paydaydesigns" and suspend all above
*2) Implement appropriate fixes in Theme-Check and the Uploader*
