I vote for the latter too but I am uncomfortable with the way you seem
to be holding brief for the fellows concerned.  You are interpreting and
providing context as if you were party to this. I am sure the concerned
folks can speak for themselves.

Someone says he deleted the archive in the unsoicited e-mail he received
and didn't read it.  You may believe this because you know and trust him
but surely you will understand that others may not.

The matter did not have to be raised on the floor either.  I for one
Would have found it preferable for the CEO to make full disclosure as
soon as the facts were available .... and certainly before he decides he
is not going to press charges.

You have agreed that it was bad judgement on at least a couple of
fronts.  An apology so we move on would help better than this spirited
