If you go to http://codex.wordpress.org/Theme_Review#Credit_Links there you
will find more information why the Theme was rejected.
Themes may *optionally* include a public-facing credit link in the Theme
- If used, Themes are *required* to include no more than one such footer
- Credit link, if used, is required to use either Theme URI or Author
- Credit link anchor text and title are *required* to be relevant and
appropriate with respect to the linked site. *Spam or SEO-seeded anchor
text and titles may subject Themes to automatic rejection.*
Since http://www.stinkyinkshop.co.u <http://www.stinkyinkshop.co.uk/>k has
nothing to do with WordPress and/or you directly (regardless of **which is
my site part**) it cannot be used. If you have a personal Blog, not related
to http://www.stinkyinkshop.co.uk use that instead.
Or you are also free to have no links at all, that's completely up to you.
