Gnauck please read this

THANK YOU I usually read the comments just when I’m bored and I’m guaranteed to see at least one “fInD tHe DifFeRence” it’s utterly pointless I’ve been trying to tell them it but they DONT LISTEN so I appreciate the help and if anyone else sees this please help the cause if your like me and hate emoji’s and if you do I hope this makes you understand.

So about the emoji’s it’s a worthless waste of space what about the parents they don’t know what to expect if all of the comments are “find the difference” and if any parent sees this it’s a great podcast for all ages but seriously it’s a REVIEW your supposed to rate circle round not make little games out of emoji’s so please just STOP.
