That sounds a lot like blackmail to me, Roger.
It is just pointing out the reality of the sad situation.
The intention is not of course to further harm this event locally but to adequatly inform, end the speculation generated and possibly help other people and events elsewhere from suffering the same fate and at the same late stage.
It used to be optimisticaly sang that 'The Truth Will Make Us Free'.
Half-truths and spin are the tactics of those who use petty rules and senseless interpretations for negative ends.
Let us not adopt the same methods and pretend (as they do) that anything positive can come out of these.
