So I suppose claiming negligence is better than lying.

A question that should be asked is if Yahoo hired him opposed to another person based off his supposed CS degree. If so, negligence or not, someone else should be chosen as CEO. (and maybe someone can properly vet them before hiring.) If it was negligence he shouldn't get ostracized but he shouldn't keep a job he's not suited for.
