Cheers Emil,  I was actually considering unsubscribing myself from the list
because I am getting sick of conversations like this.
People have no right to call the reviewers and staff out.

The way I see it there are two options.

1. If you consider your theme worthy enough to break the rules, ask for an
exception to them and abide by the admins decision.

2. Don't submit your theme.
