That's because you made it clear you'd already pretty badly broken your
system, and wouldn't actually do any of the things other posters had
told you to do to fix it ;-)
Don't take it personally. A lot of people in here get annoyed at the
"Wah, it's broken, why is no-one helping me!" attitude that a lot of
people bring. It's worth acquainting yourself with ESR's "How To Ask
Questions The Smart Way".

Claiming to be dyslexic doesn't really help. I'm very severely
dyslexic. I just take the time to make sure what I've written makes
sense. People who bash out badly-written nonsense with terrible grammar
and worse spelling aren't doing it because they're dyslexic (although
they may be), they're doing it because they're lazy.
