I'm shopping for a premium WordPress theme. The Thesis Theme is one of the most well promoted premium WordPress themes on the 'net.

A Google search for "thesis theme" turns up a slew of glowing reviews for the theme -- from their affiliates.

Visiting the thesis theme's web site, I am very annoyed by a few things:

  • All the showcase sites are very simple.
  • There is no contact information for pre-sales questions.
  • You can't ask questions on their forum, or even view their forum, until after you purchase the theme.

Frankly, everything I see screams scam to me. This theme doesn't appear to be in the same league as WP Remix, the Revolution family of themes, or some of the themes from Graph Paper Press.
