Please help me understand all the errors and misunderstandings, contained in the following paragraphs:

1. When a gravitational wave passes through earth, it 'squashes' the form of earth, hence gravity geometry is changed, hence gravity at any given point on Earth change at that moment, be it a small change as may be.

The only reason for that change in gravity, as the gravitational wave passes through, is the above mentioned change in the form of earth, when the gravitational wave passes through it, i.e. depending on the angle from which the gravitational wave arrives, Earth shape changes, for example, from a slightly squashed form to an even more squashed form. In the case of other angles of attack of the gravitational wave, gravity is influenced, by other changes in the form of the mass that the gravitational wave passes through.

2. And the above has a lot to do with what the strong equivalence principle states: that in order to say that acceleration and gravity are equivalent, we must ignore the shape or form of the celestial mass, usually a round mass, which produces the gravity ('earth'). Ignoring that round shape means, having a measuring equipment small enough ('local'), so the round geometry properties of that mass gravity can be ignored, which then could be considered as gravity measured by the equipment, as if its geometry was shaped in a straight line and not in a curved or a round line.
