THIS is why I hate ThemeForest/CodeCanyon

The products at those sites are what gives WordPress the reputation of being insecure.  ThemeForest is especially bad because people who have no business creating or selling a theme, create and sell themes that incorporate the plugins that later cause all of the problems.

I wish I could burn the whole thing to the ground.

Most of the problems that we have to solve for WP sites are almost always caused by a piece of trash dressed up like a theme.  I have reached the point where I don't even bother trying to help with them any more if they are using junk themes.
