I thought they at least answered most of the questions you raised in your blog post.
Here's my thoughts on them:
1. If the fairies don't need a leader, why don't they care when Maleficent sets herself up as their queen? (Angelina Jolie is fab as the vampy witch fairy.
I thought she did a kind of takeover of the kingdom as she was the most powerful fairy of them all. With her strength and anger, she did a hostile takeover.
2. Why is human Stefan (Sharlto Copley) so horrifically awful to his fairy friend Maleficent after being so sweet to her?
Stefan mentioned early on he desired to live in the castle and be king. As he spent more time away from Maleficent and her world, he was slowly consumed with greed, eventually leading him to do the nasty deed.
3. Why do three "nice" fairies (Lesley Manville, Imelda Staunton and Juno Temple) turn their backs on their homeland in order to raise little human baby Aurora (Elle Fanning), apparently as a favor to the cruel Stefan?
After Maleficent placed the curse on the baby Aurora, these fairies felt a duty to care for the child. It's the least they could do after one of their own did such a cruel thing.
4. How come, if Maleficent casts a nasty revenge spell on the baby, but later casts another spell to revoke it when she learns the error of her vindictive ways, it doesn't stay revoked?
It was because of the original spell that Maleficent wasn't able to revoke the curse. The original curse stated that the curse couldn't be revoked. Thus, even Maleficent wasn't able to stop it.
