someone mailed me that he wants a wordpress theme similar to the one that I uploaded in themeforest and i ask what was the purpose of the theme.
Below was the message

I need this theme for personal use because I’m going to launch a website which will be Wordpress based. I just need a theme and after that I can do work upon this independently. One thing you have to keep in your mind that, I’ll upload this theme to Themeforest in order to verify the grade of design. If Themeforest accepts your theme then I will pay you the money. I’m not going to sale this theme on Themeforest probably.

do you get mails like this

This is just awesome. Monumental. Hey Envato, you should charge for your reviews! :)

Yes, It looks like people are ready to use a reviewer’s time to test a theme’s worthiness.
no harm in charging for a review

Whoa, this look to me like a cheap way for a guy to sell a theme made from you.

There’s absolutely no guarantee that he won’t sell it..
