So let's get to the point.
Is it your opinion the pilots were trying to do the right thing but the flight control computers, "HAL" if you insist, grabbed their arm and didn't let them?
If so, please point out where, as it would be a serious factor in AF477 and definitely should be discussed here.
Otherwise, maybe a separate general FBW thread would be a more fruitful place for a discussion of these matters?
