Sure can.... but the site DOES sell subscriptions, and just ignoring the bugs doesn't really mesh well with the nature of skinners, which is to be bugged by the little imperfections.
I'm a subscriber... and I'm a contributor (not now as much as I used to be), but I don't think I've ever even viewed the most popular section. I just come here for the people, and the cool skins, and that's that. I don't care which are most popular, or if mine is on the list... I look at everything, and I use what I like.
