    That's not even a good excuse.

    Nobody would have expected them to run the emails without more information; that's just a red herring.  But that Fiedler guy even admits himself that "sick" is a possible interpretation; given that, the only responsible thing to do would have been to look into it.  They didn't.

    I won't speculate on motivation: whether it was laziness, stupidity or just good old-fashioned political butt-kissing, you can add the editors of those papers to the list of enablers.
