    I am just starting out a new project to be based on the Extinct Theme.
    My client loves your theme, and as a developer of course I do to because I suggested it to her.

    But I have always meant to stop in here and pose a suggestion:
    When you install the demo data it comes with 130+ SPAM comments.
    And, you know, for obvious reasons, that’s just wrong, and unnecessary.

    Before you generate and publish a Demo Data import file, don’t you think it would be a good idea to remove this kind of stuff? And yes, of course, I can and am doing that now.

    But by-and-large, non-developer types who use your theme, and/or the 90% of developers who are just careless and sloppy in their work… would just not even know or think to do this.

    So, you’re essentially delivering a theme to people that is FULL OF SPAM and VIRAL MALWARE LINKS. Right?

    Just a suggestion, and BTW, one that I usually have to make to the development team of almost Every, Single, Theme that I buy. *sigh*

    ACK!!! Same here. TONS of Chinese spam WITH links in the XML file.

    WTH????? Is this fixed now? I just downloaded it all half an hour ago (again), so the “version” I got must be the current one. With spam in the comments?
