  1. I have no idea what you are talking about. I love your themes for both mediawiki and wordpress. I have a theme for my wordpress blog that works good for what I want it to do so I don’t have a need for yours but I am still confused by this posting.

    If you don’t want people using your themes, don’t offer them for download. All you have to do is ask me to stop using your mediawiki themes and I will.

    A comment was left on my post “My first WordPress theme released.” (deleted), which was saying something junk with some junk links.

    I cannot see the real name, email or real web site. However this is his IP address: ( ).

    The information about this IP:

    City: Grand Canyon
    Region: Arizona
    Country: United States

    Well, I don’t like to see such comment. If he has any questions or suggestions, he could ask or give me right direction, especially when we are working on open source and sharing with open source community.

    If you like the K2 theme that I’m using in my blog, please go to K2007.

    Hi Paul,

    I haven’t ‘opened’ my wiki to the public yet, but your MediaWiki skin is great.
    I appreciate your contribution.

    Best Regards

    Hmm, I think, this could be types of spam. I have activated the Akismet plugin which is a anti-spam software, let’s se what will happen.

    Don’t worry if you see comments that are not nice. It is just part of life, there are people who always dislike everything, those people achieve nothing. Forget them. I’m sure many people like your skins, and i would like to thank you for sharing them for free online. And last thing, do you know the usual process of a new idea (from Nietzsche I think): (1) it is laughed at and ridculized, (2) it is violently fought, (3) your former critics then say they have always strongly supported your idea. Perhaps it is the same for a skin!
    Good luck
