Okay I'll bite. (Apologies for picking on you twice in recent days!)

McLaren was fortunate enough for not being expelled from the championship after stealing plans and specifications and paying (you have to assume some interest had the parties involved) for a spy acting inside a competitor.
McLaren were expelled from the championship, only the drivers kept their places in the drivers championship. McLaren were also hit with a $100m fine, far more than any damage caused through their alleged actions.
No plans were stolen, there was no theft, they were given the plans by an employee of the other team.
No money changed hands, and you cannot assume that this was the case. Are you seriously suggesting that McLaren were so involved as to authorise payments to Stepney, but were unable to lend him a photocopier forcing him to go to a local printers instead!?

Then they expelled the former World Champion after an embarrassing internal incident among their drivers: it was evident to me that expelling Alonso was Hamilton goal, I wasn't born yesterday.
Alonso wasn't expelled, although frankly after his behavior of attempting to blackmail Ron Dennis he should have been. He chose to leave and McLaren chose to let him. In all of this Alonso to me is by far the biggest agitator, and lets not forget that Alonso was one of the major players in the Stepneygate affair that has you so worked up. He was aware of, and aided, the flow of information into McLaren.

Now I think FIA should punish Hamilton for "allowing himself" to be a "team player", that is, for knowingly lying to a refereee and colluding with other people to get an unfair penalty for Toyota. Where I live that's not called "team playing", that's called "lack of character".
I have to hear that he was witchhunted. People, if you're a witch, then a witchhunt is adequate!
Frankly the fact that the FIA intend to take the McLaren saga further does smack of a witch hunt. There have been many documented cases of drivers lying to the stewards in the past, with no subsequent action being taken. Take the Schumacher parking incident at Monaco - Schumacher told the stewards that it wasn't deliberate, they found against him. By definition they believe that he was lying to them.
Schumacher was only found out after telemetry was made available showing he broke something like 3 times harder than ever before at that corner. Very similar to Lewis being caught out by the radio recording this time.
In Schumacher's case he was, rightly in my opinion, excluded from qualifying. In Lewis's case he was excluded, again rightly in my opinion, from the results of the Australian GP. In both instances that should have been it, punishment given out that fit the crime and then that's it. In this instance though the FIA want to pursue McLaren further and I can only conclude that it is due to a personal vendetta on the part of Max Mosley. He blames Ron Dennis for his Nazi sex tape shame, and has persecuted McLaren ever since.

Was he inocent? Look, who benefited from the "mistake" involving Trulli? Lewis Hamilton. Who benefited from Alonso expulsion? Lewis Hamilton. Who was the only one at McLaren (beside Ron Dennis... a thing that defies belief) who did not know they were using information from Ferrari? Yep. Lewis Hamilton. This guy lives in the clouds, if you believe to his fans. A robot has more responsibility...
Same thing can be said of the "Director-that-doesn't-direct", Ron Dennis: everybody and his dog, even tyre changers, knew what McLaren was doing. Everybody except Ron Dennis. Thank heavens he has no clue of what's going on in his team! Because if he knew, then he would be a fat liar, don't you agree?
To the people that feels sorry for Hamilton mistake, I only can say that there is a clear line dividing collaboration from complicity.
I'm really tired of a team cheating its way and being caught several times while many people still chant the "Ferrari is to blame" song. Oh, c'mon. Did Ferrari planted everything? Did they force McLaren to behave, for the last two years, like a house ran by the Mafia?
It's McLaren the ugly team nowadays and you all know it. FIA letter doesn't leave room for guesses: they continued to lie even when confronted with their own recordings. For the love of Pete, what's that? Not even my children do that. I have doubts: I don't know if to call it stupidity or crime. I guess I have to settle for both.
The rest of your post is personal opinion and conjecture. I disagree with the majority of it, but there's little point arguing over it until we agree on the first half of your post which deals with the events and our own perceptions of them.
