Why do some people ruin the Pottermore experience?

Question by : Why do some people ruin the Pottermore experience?
I keep seeing questions on here about changing houses or swapping accounts on Pottermore to get the house you want (usually Gryffindor or Ravenclaw). It’s so annoying because I have to wait until October to get into Pottermore, and I would feel great with whatever house I get because that would be the right house for me. I just wonder how it’s fair that some people that ruin the sorting experience get in before me.

Best answer:

Answer by ᶠᵋᵋᶩᶦᶯᵍ directionless YᴱS
I got in early, but I’ve yet to get my email and everyone on Tumblr is being an asshole and saying that it’s nothing great. I know exactly what you’re saying.
People just like to complain.

Using the quantifiable data collected from more than 23,600 Web site evaluations over the past decade, the WebAwards has defined and recognized industry-specific benchmarks for successful Web sites in each of these areas and release a the Internet Standards Assessment Report to communicate the findings of the study.
