Otherwise you must have some amazing mind-reading abilities, and you should be off somewhere making money in casinos. Stop reading our minds!

They’re meant to prevent people from trolling, bullying or otherwise behaving nastily, so you can all get on with creating, tapping, sharing the love and generally being awesome. So get your Skute on!
