I have just copied and pasted part of your message. Have I violated copyright
laws?
Lot of theory and not enough common sense. Remainds me of one of my
interpreting assignments when a person in the Pentagon stated that their new
policy worked in practice, but they had to prove that it does work in theory.

If, by any chance, somebody would want to respond to this, don't copy and
paste it. I would be a serious violation of all international laws. [Just
kidding]
