I read through your post a second time, and thought of new things (haha My first day on the job and I am breaking the rules by using it for personal use).

Does a graviton have to be affected by gravity? According to you, it should. But if gravitons are affected by gravity, then how could they escape a black hole? Gravity is the only thing that stops escape, right? And if gravitons 'escape' i.e. radiate from the center of mass, then they can't be affected by gravity in the first place or they would never escape, and the black hole would not have a gravitational influence. Then gravitons could escape (and so could everything else) but if gravitons escape then it would have a gravitational influence.

A loop develops.

Is there a hole in that statement or am I wrong (most probably) or what?
