> I'm WordPress theme reviewer. Someone suddenly tried to make direct
> contact via email this evening. He wanted to take benefit from my
> theme reviewing works. Here is the main idea of the message:
> "You will just review the wp.org themes as you do now, and we will pay
> you for it. But you need to be a top reviewer of the month so you can
> choose our theme to be in the featured section. Is this interesting
> for you? Let us know. Thanks."
> I want to know whether it is allowed or not. Had anyone ever had
> similar experience?
> If you were in my position, as professional theme reviewer what will you do?
> From my personal point of view, doing something like this is not good.
> It is a crucial issue dealing with maintaining featured themes
> quality. Because it is driven by money rather than objectiveness of
> theme reviewers.
> How WordPress respond this problem? Further more, I'm really curious
> of how WordPress maintain the featured themes stay badass and
> 'healthy'.
> All the best.
