Hello Alan,

AM> Templates...yeah, I pretty much don't care for them.

So you get one shoddy job applicant who likes to lie about their
abilities and rule-out templates as a whole? I'm struggling to see the
reasoning here - people use clip-art if they can't draw too well, stock
photography if they're no David Bailey, pre-made apps if coding isn't
their thing - what is the difference with web site templates? (other
than the fact that most people on this list create sites for a living,
for example I would expect a similar response discussing stock
photography on a photographic list).

Best regards,

Richard Davey
