    So I've been on BHW downloads section and I find a lot of paid plugins and paid themes. If I were to use these paid (cracked) plugins and themes on my site. Would I get in deep shit with the developers/creators? I'm not sure whether to use em on my site or not.

    No you most certainly will not unless you contact them directly and thank them for their products and mention you're using a nulled version of it.
    Whatever you plan to use,just make sure you do a Virustotal scan of it. Don't scan the download URL. Download the file and upload it onto the site for a scan.
    *Mentioning the procedure of scan just in case*

    Also,don't expect all the features of the theme to work like described in the paid product,for obvious reasons.
    Cheers!

    If someone has the skill to develop a theme, it is possible for him/her to write a programme to ruin your site if you use their theme without authorisation. Besides there are plenty of excellent FREE THEMES out there that are better than the paid themes and will be of no risk compared to the cracked theme. The only disadvantage you get with a free theme is that the developer may decide to stop updating it. However this disadvantage can be removed by using a free theme developed by the wordpress group....twenty eleven, twenty twelve etc.
