I've had my thread closed by mod, because I was asking for help for free theme, which can be purchased (and only then they offer support).
Rule cited http://codex.wordpress.org/Forum_Welcome#The_Bad_Stuff includes the following line: ˝We do NOT support premium themes as you paid for their support˝ - I didn't and I stated so in my post and ˝ If someone wants to help, that is fine.˝
I don't think mod's decision was per rules. I suggest WP forums specify rules in this regard or issue some instructions to mods (I noticed not all of them close threads because of same issues).
I understand what the intention of the rule was and I can respect that, but blocking any discussion on ˝commercial˝ themes when this discussion is being an only or last resort of WP users, seems rather ... unnecessary.
