Not questioning any judgement here, but how long was VS given to reply? The OP was not long ago, and it's not as if we never miss notifications or take brief breaks from Jalopnik. I respect Matt's decision, and I have no doubt that you have taken the matter into consideration (he does, after all, have the experience here)—however, I am still going to wait to see what VictoriousSecret has to say before I form an opinion about his actions. Even if he saw it within the past 10 hours or so, we all have our bad days and say things we regret, and sometimes it takes a few hours to think of what to say and not feel guilty.
I'm out of here now!
