Policy and Guidelines
   Finely tuning application guidelines and terms of service to best fit
   our user’s experience (most recent changes were personally done
   by Tom!)
       That’s right - We don’t allow 'incentivizing' viral methods
       Viral methods require user action and are modally blocking (1
       per action only)
   Manual review process in full effect to catch contextual and
   obfuscated violations (CSRF, Adult/Offensive Material)
   100% monetization of canvas view goes to developer
