Why the hell do you keep saying that?

There *are* lawyers who have said that what Tivo did was legal. They were
the FSF's own lawyers. So now you're saying "I am not a lawyer, but that's
not right".

So you're trying to state some legal point, admitting that you're not a
lawyer, and admitting that actual real-life lawyers disagree with you?

So please explain why the *hell* you would expect us to take your points
