    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Puzzling.SE! Please could you make clearer what the puzzle is here? All we have is the title "rearrange the alphabet" and a string of letters (which isn't 26 letters long and has two Z's, so it can't be the alphabet rearranged). $\endgroup$ Aug 18 '15 at 8:18

It's actually a very simple shift (caesar) cipher. Just shift all letters by 13 and you get your solution. So when A = 1 and Z = 26 Add 13 to the letter and you get your solution:

Know, your limits, stop bothering me, thank you

Because it is 13 so exactly half of 26 decrypting and encrypting is exactly the same operation

You can try it out here: http://www.xarg.org/tools/caesar-cipher/

    $\begingroup$ In other words, ROT-13: the simplest of all Caesar ciphers! $\endgroup$ Aug 18 '15 at 9:05

It is a substitution cipher which says:
