I am not too sure because if I want to make noise about how my developer screwed up, highlighting the incompetence of the direct manager played a big part as well. Yea sure maybe the minute detail of management overtures being refused can be missed because they wanted to portray themselves as a good guy.

From the looks of it the whole thing was written from "an expose on star developer culture" point of view. In which case, admitting your own mistakes in the first draft takes backseat and it's all about the "star developer".

What is even more surprising is given that so many people have pointed out this hole, there hasn't been an edit to clarify this point. I am not digital content expert but if it does spread wide, no one is going to care what is in the comments.

Depends where the poster stands in the organization.

Highlighting failure of an employee is always a bad idea. Highlighting failure of many employees and the entire chain of command is a suicide move.
