No, it’s not anything sexual. Or related to Piers Morgan. Or Brexit. Or Trump.
It only takes a glance at her Twitter feed to notice J.K Rowling gets hundreds of Harry Potter questions every single day.
Inquiries go from the absolutely absurd to the philosophical, and for the most part, the author is open to answer.
Rowling is known for sharing many behind-the-scene details about her books, as well valuable industry and craft advice for young and upcoming authors.
But a recent Twitter exchange with Vulture journalist Mark Harris revealed that there are some questions that she’s definitively had enough of. The journalist asked her in a tweet:
You are trapped in an elevator with one other person. What is the worst way he can start a conversation?

In his inquiry he jokingly offered four possible answers, “Jet fuel can’t melt steel”, “Have you read Dianetics?”, “I just came from Crossfit” and “you seem neoliberal”
Rowling however, opted to give Harris the real issue that has been bugging her for decades.
'Got a bone to pick with you. Why's the Snitch worth 150 points?…side that catches it always wins… makes no sense…' & on & on forever. https://t.co/JR8zrJbgeU

Apparently, fans could never wrap their heads around the fictional game’s scoring system. In a game of Quidditch, Quaffle goals mean ten points each while catching the Golden Snitch equates to 150 points.
Fans argue the disparity is absurd, since whoever catches the Golden Snitch will automatically win the game.
Well, not quite.
Hardcore fans will recall that in the Goblet of Fire, during the Quidditch World Cup final, Bulgaria lost to Ireland 160-170 despite being the side that captured the Golden Snitch.
J.K. Rowling is currently running a crowdfunding campaign to provide support to the vulnerable children and families in Haiti. The island has been hit by two massive hurricanes, Matthew AND Irma in the course of a year and is currently desperate for help.
