Yes constant questioning is at the heart of scientific inquiry however deliberate obfuscation of established science for political and economic objectives is not scepticism but subterfuge.
I'm not sure which side you are arguing for.
How the hell does Muti-terabytes of data leave your network, without even a HINT of it. I'm sure that whatever cost savings they were going for when IT budgets came out was well worth it. I hope Sony gets it pants sued off (see first paragraph) by the likes of all the actors, crews and other employees.
What a cluster fuck.
I don't know their system and I'm only an amateur at network programming but if they do a lot of data transfers what makes you think they will notice terabytes of data copied when they are probably usually seeing petabytes moving around? The whole point of networks is easy transfer of data, effective security makes it harder for legitimate users to use the network and results in a lot of complaints to IT. I work with a government contractor and I'm pretty sure I could bypass most of their security with a virus on a thumb drive, if I wanted to.
Otherwise, well said.
