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.
