Maybe you people who complain about how KDE looks, write about it to KDE itself? Go to freenode IRC, #kde-art room, and tell how it should be. Or fill a bug at bugzilla.kde.org. Or try to fix it yourself (this is open-source, baby!) and show us the progress and release a patch.
So many options, and you choose to complain.
Cute. I remember a few years back people suggesting very specific things to make the window manager look better to the people involved. They were met with great hostility and found themselves in a never ending debate. End result being, nothing changed. If that's still common practice I understand people for not putting in the effort again. The exact same thing happened with Camino, an OS X browser based on Gecko. Huge fights while the only thing people dared to suggest was to incorporate a lavender/blue sidebar in the bookmarks manager and a borderless window design, as is the norm on OS X.
And before you start: Not everyone has coding skills but do have a very keen eye when it comes to interface design.
