 how did you gain that impression from a logical chain of "ANDed"
statements which began with some illegal and unethical behaviour by

 i note from the above context that you cut off the absolutely
critical part of the chain of ANDed statements.  you specifically cut
the one *right* at the beginning, which was the illegal and unethical
behaviour that ARM committed against luc verhaegen.

 did you not read that part, or were you under the impression that it
was not part of the chain of logical reasoning?

 has NVIDIA engaged in similar illegal or unethical practices to that
which ARM carried out against luc verhaegen, which we know were and
are sanctioned by the CTO of ARM?
