LOL, no defense necessary...your guys' posts were fine.
I think that everyone's treading in dangerous waters here if you are trying to make alterations to your system without having an .SBF file (best option) or custom recovery and Nandroid backup available.
(I should not that simply installing root-privilege apps like drocap2, TiBu, Root Explorer, etc. is fine as long as all due caution is observed).
tehsusenoh's thread here is a good one for people to be once again reminded that these early days of rooting for your Bionic's is really a scary time in some respects. You know we're going to hear of folks soft-bricking their phones, regardless of everyone's (especially trophynuts' excellent cautionary thread) and probably a few that will return them to VZW for an improper warranty return.
So, yes, I do think its not worth the risk at this point to use TiBu to restore any system apps since a potential boot-loop is not anything you want to have to face at this point in time without the proper safety net in-place.
Just my two cents
