Honestly I am under no obligation to explain anything to you, I have my reasons for taking the path that I did.

Chill my friend.
There is no shame in trying to become a DYI calibrator, and deciding its just not your cup of tea. As I said many before you did the exact same thing as you did.
My suggestions to the OP is as follows.
1. Check his D2 for repeatability.
2. Start over, this time follow CM's workflow and how to do it to the letter.
3. Use D-Nice settings except for any adjustments to his grayscale and CMS.
4. Get the grayscale close starting with 30% and 100%, then the other 8 points.
5. Try and adjust the CMS settings.
6. If he see's he is making headway, then decide if you want to start upgrading your hardware.
7. As I have said, from looking at his CIE (CMS) chart, is his Y values. What he has to understand that if you move a primary you must adjust the other two primary's to compensate. That probably is one of the reasons why is Y values are off, plus there is something very funky going on with his Y value for 100%. More than likely he is adjusting that setting to compensate, and as you know that is a big no no. You would only adjust your 100% point very slightly as a touch up after you have set up your grayscale and CMS, then recheck all your settings
Its for these reasons why it is so important to follow Calman step by step guide.
Does this make sense to you.?
