I just had a quick look at Sapphire out of curiousity. The Author section included as part of the sidebar will raise many questions.
It includes this text.
A little something about you, the author. Nothing lengthy, just an overview. You have to edit the sidebar.php file in your theme folder to add content to this part.
Obviously, to some, with no access to the sidebar.php file this cannot be changed to add the blog authors profile. To others with less experience on WP.com or WP.org the forum will fill up fast with related questions.
Having the above text on display ruins the design of an otherwise decent looking theme.
Cue the "What were they thinking" moment.
