If what you do has value, offer it and charge for it. Doing that will remove people who wouldn’t provide you any value in return.
Favorites among ThemeForest authors is going to be very different from the global usage of eCommerce platforms. From the Alexa Top Million Sites there are 34,864 eCommerce sites and WordPress isn’t even in the top 10 platforms.

Why would that matter? Thousands of people answer direct messages by email every day. If somebody knows your password obviously…
It’s a legitimate point though. Is there a policy regarding browsers that do rapid auto-updates?
I wager nobody is actually testing in Chrome 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, and 30 — also that nobody remembers the difference between them.

Just put a button at the bottom that says “This site’s responsive experience is terrible because the designer failed, but it didn’t have to be that way. Take me to the desktop site.”

That’s two price increases for WordPress in one year. This needs to spread to other categories i.e. Magento which requires massively more work than WordPress but is selling at the same price point from its launch in 2010.
Pick 50 themes, track their sales weekly for 2 months, and boom — you should have a good idea of drop-off and sales expectations. It’s not rocket science and I’d be surprised if many authors haven’t done it to forecast churn in the slash/burn categories like WordPress.
