[theme-reviewers] Theme Concept and Code Formatting Methodology

The following isn't just TidyThemes' philosophy on theme design, but my own
personal one with all themes I design and projects that I work on in
general (WordPress related or not):


I think all works should be made as white label, simple, consistent and
minimalist as possible for the user to take hold and make something
uniquely their own without having to navigate through all these
cookie-cutter design elements and overly commented files which arguably is
kind of a form of branding. I submitted the same idea for WP itself (in
vein I'm sure, but it's never a bad idea to think about and discuss our
ideas for that reason alone):


I realize my ideas aren't very popular, but it's becoming so tiring to
explain to reviewers and mods and users over and over that it's all a
purposeful method and not just something "wrong" with the code.

My convictions rarely change, because they're well-thought out to begin
with, but I'm open to opinions and others to share how they wish for users
to use their themes as well if this is a discussion you're interested in.

Thanks, Bryan
