Back in the old days, the only thing you’d have to worry about, curse-wise, was angering creepy old ladies who were wandering around in the forest. They’d turn you into a newt, but there was probably a decent chance that you deserved it.
That was that.
Now we have the internet, and any little comment can get you in trouble. You have no idea who’s out there. Apparently, I ticked somebody off, and suddenly anybody can just edit my life like a Wikipedia page.
The newts had no idea how lucky they were.
