I'll give it a go, although I'm not optimistic about changing anyone's mind here.
WTC7 was in fact very damaged, it's just that everyone was paying more attention to 1&2. Here is an NYPD photo in which you can see that a large amount of the lower floors had been knocked out. Nothing suspicious there, it was right in the 'firing line' of the collapse debris from three nearby buildings (one of which was WTC6, which no-one ever mentions, and which disappeared completely).
As for the BBC report in which it was stated that WTC7 had collapsed when it hadn't, if you can remember that day's blizzard of news, there were hijacked planes being reported everywhere (one I especially remember is four planes heading up the Potomac - never heard another word about them), casualty estimates running into tens of thousands, claims of car-bombs elsewhere in NYC, etc, etc, etc. No-one, but no-one, had a f*cking clue what was happening. In all that chaos, someone hits the "7" instead of the "6" on their keyboard, and a report that "WTC6 has collapsed" (which it had) turns into a report that WTC7 had collapsed instead.
TL;DR - WTC7 is a complete dead end, it's utter nonsense.
