I'm writing this since somebody younger might read this who has a problem akin to mine related to being severely dyslexic smile. I smile since that word is really hard for somebody like me to type smile... Its very frustrating making all these typos, often using a crappy wireless keyboard/laggy... So words or sentences might appear totally wrong or things are left out. I got some message logging in saying something, I thought I typed "Take Care Later" but it was "Take Care Loser"? When people read they look at the first letter/last letter of a word... So when typing later or loser it can look exactly like the word are thinking or intending only to have a totally different word show up... Normal people look at that thinking how could a person make a typo that blatant or not see it? I can read something 10-20 times or more wrong at times or even take a day or hours to finally realize if ever... I know somebody quoted something on here where I said Tampa Bay Won when was trying to say how were 1st President Trophy team to get swept... I wouldn't of had any clue what he was talking about if he didn't bold the area... Even then it took me a fair amt of time/effort to manage to see it if at all smile... Even then I'm not sure I was able to edit it properly... I passed the keyboard specialist test for NY, I get blinded by all these whit screens or backgrounds... So it makes it harder to read properly even when thinking are...

I wasn't on here for a while partly from people trolling me or trying to irk me... Going out of their way to troll me, replying to posts attacking me... All these little things, then when react or stand up for myself they use that as excuse to cry to some admin or whatever. Even not logging on here for over a year I still had posts as the most active or last post in certain forums or more than I should. This is like the top site when it comes to salary cap or related issues... So I think if people created a better environment it would benefit the site getting it recognition it deserves... I just don't understand why other forums on here are not more active... I was teased my entire life, tormented, I had speech problems/reading... ON way to school entire bus would say teven, since I couldn't say S or my name etc... So all sorts of things like that, not once in my life did any admin or anybody in authority every step in or do a damn thing... So they can all rot, I don't view any who are in that roll as being decent in general... I been a Sysop, ran systems since 300 baud modem/250+ users on at once including MUDS... I never forgot where I came from, I was fair, didn't play favorites or abuse power or anything.

I've had police show up at my house over typos or things wrote on-line claiming all this BS. I really try to just avoid people, I even replied to the thread not directly at people when came back... Figuring I would just say how felt, not really look around or react. AT least 1 person that I recall from prior did seem to oddly reply to me... Saying OK to a message that had nothing to do w/ them in reply to a totally different person smile? Its good to try to socialize when have PTSD other things, so don't become isolated where start hating people or the world. I hope people feel encouraged to participate on here even if they have difficulty reading or writing. I think about deleting my account at times since people really hate me in general... Like they go out of their way or unrelated things... I think its bad for me often, I should enjoy talking about hockey or to others... There are some who give me really nice replies or say cool things that I think make it worth the effort. I got nerve damage, had C5-C7 neck fusion, so it makes it really hard to type or read right smile. I was so upset by horrible trade of Vegas moving Miller or I don't know if I would have ever logged in again... I had a dog who had tumors in his spleen, they told me he would only have a few days/a couple times but he lived over 13 months... Then sometime after that another dog was at Vet 11 days... Telling me how they think she has tumors in chest/stomach... Wanted to cut her open to look... I suggested ultrasound/turned out she ate part of cotton/poly sheet, even swallowed some pitch fork from Loofa toy that she managed to throw up at Vet... Since had synthetic fibers she couldn't expel or throw up the sheets she ate... So try to get cotton/natural fibers if have any pets/dogs would be my free save 6K on operation to remove advice... She was depressed, other beagle, so eventually got another dog... Then he started eating part of couch/sheets/walls, didn't really have much time to come on here or anything.

I had communicated w/ the guy who ran CapGeek... I used to love that site, even if he wrongly listed Toffoli was a Center who had like 3 career faceoffs at time smile... Even won rookie of year in AHL I think playing RW hehe. The guy that ran it replied to my email, he stuck by his wrong view though smile. I was doing fantasy at time so was just mad at him... Since sites would list him as Center over Wing making it hard to do the restricted lineups. It was clearly wrong, I wish this site would list RS or LS for their defense instead of wrong listing many as RD/LD who don't even play that side. I think hockey is bad for me in general its expensive if my team wins or sad if they don't wink. I always have anxiety when anybody replies to me... I'm afraid to even look at their reply since its always expected to be negative or an attack smile. If I'm taking a while to reply, its probably because of the anxiety to even read or react smile. Also other things going on in life, they wont give me medication they gave last month for my rear smile? Suddenly they claim something from 2005 is showing up smile? So then I gotta get proof about something 15 years ago smile? Yet if I want to get my refill I could use the card that expired in 2006 smile? I started on 300 baud modems, I hate this computer culture/world.... Its just not for me, try to sleep all can/rest if dyslexic it can help to a degree wink. I can't even get a picture to work when I tried to make them on here so just gave up wink.

I just hope I'm still around to mock Seattle or do a draft depending on what they name team smile. I'm having a lot of trouble reading/writing so wanted to let people know why. I could blame it on auto correct or other things too wink. There some cool people on here who I had fun talking to or seeing them in general... I just wont name them since they would be tainted by associating w/ somebody like me smile. I don't want to drag anybody else down to the Abyss. I wish I bought some Blu-Rays before they became out of print or unable to get for decent price wink. Congrats to any Blues fans who read this for finally winning Cup after getting swept in 3 of them smile. I want the legend of Tim Thomas to be the last goalie to ever win for Bruins smile...

@Daoloth I think a lot of people on this site (including myself) are sometimes a bit too mean. I try not to be too mean, but occasionally people say things like "you probably don't watch hockey". I try not to say things like that, but sometimes I say things like, "that just doesn't make sense". I think a lot of people do that, and usually it's assumed that people mean in their own opinion. If someone says "this is a horrible trade for [team]", it is usually assumed that they mean "in my opinion this is a horrible trade". I use IMO a lot when posting on CF. (For anyone who doesn't know what IMO means, it means "in my opinion.") Sometimes i just don't though. And that's usually because i'm assuming others will understand that i'm saying it's my opinion. For example, i know we've been talking with each other about the NHL draft lottery. I haven't said "you're wrong. The draft lottery is not rigged." I've said that you never gave me one good reason to believe that it is. And you can think you have given a good reason, but i know for a fact that you haven't given one reason to make me believe that the draft lottery is rigged. I never said you're 100% wrong. One of the things that i enjoy about this website is the debates. It's kind of boring if everyone agrees on everything. However, i don't like it when people say things like "you don't watch hockey". If someone is actually being mean, the MODs will do something about it. You can report posts if you have a problem with them.

I rarely report posts. I don't know when the last time i reported one was. But if you have a problem with a post, you can always report it with an explanation. The MODs are good with this stuff and that's one of the things I like about CapFriendly. The MODs don't ignore people if there's a glitch or whatever. They look at suggestions and don't just ignore what everyone else is saying. If you go to the GM Game forum you'll find a Quebec team that the MODs changed. I think it was originally the Flyers, but they changed the team and the picks to being the Quebec Nordiques. And they've done that a lot. The MODs do a great job and that's one thing i really like about this website. If you report a post and they don't do anything then they probably don't see anything wrong with it, which most likely means there's nothing too bad about it. They'll do something about it if it's really bad, and if it's arguable then they'll find something to do about it. I've gotten a few messages in the past about posts i have made but not as much recently. I try not to be mean and i hope others aren't mean, either.

There has been some stuff going on in the GM Game that kind of have to do with this. Some GMs have quit because they didn't like some of the other GMs, and without saying any names, there have been some GMs in the past who I haven't been too happy with. But i've noticed some GMs have changed and I used to have problems with those GMs but not really anymore. We want everyone being nice to each other and at this point people are for the most part. And we want that happening anywhere on CapFriendly, online, and in real life, obviously. About the auto-correct we've all had that happen where auto-correct changes things to say something totally different. I have nothing wrong with your posts or anything. We've disagreed on things like the draft lottery and the Golden Knights' defence vs. the Senators' defence, but that's one thing i enjoy about this website. I like the debates as long as no one is being mean.

Again, you can ask @Banks or @Jarvis or maybe any other MODs I didn't know were on CF haha ... or you could contact CapFriendly. And if you don't have a big problem with it you could just not do anything about it, which would be fine if you have nothing wrong with anything that's going on here. But if you want something to change, i'd suggest contacting them. I'll let you figure out what you want to do, i'm just giving you some ideas which you probably already thought of, but whatever ... the MODs will figure something out, though, if there's anything wrong. Thanks, MODs, for everything you do for this site.

I have tried hard to not be mean and say mean things in posts but I have noticed that it comes up often. I post AGMs all the time and people always have a negative comment on them. The thing about the internet is that people like to hide behind there screen and say mean things because they feel better about themselves. Normally the people who are most satisfied with life and are living life to its fullest are going to say something nice. I have sympathy for you in that people are making front of you so I hope you understand what I am saying. People are always going to say mean things to you, I just hope that you feel bad for them instead of being hurt by them, because for them to say something mean and totally unkind, they must have had a bad upbringing or they are struggling in life. I hope that these messages helped you!
