I am not here to do your research for you. I am here to offer help and
guidance, on a voluntary basis, when I feel like doing so.

Anything else is part of my professional consultancy services. These
start at £75 per hour and I am happy to discuss deals with you by
private email.

I've told you the answers. If you don't like them, that's not my
problem. If you don't understand them, go learn about it and then you
will understand why. If you disagree, well, go create your own
distribution.
