Autonomy founder Mike Lynch, who takes center stage in H-P's (HPQ) accounting fraud allegations, has issued an open letter to H-P's board in which he rejects "all allegations of impropriety," and asks several pointed questions regarding the specifics and timing of H-P's claims. Lynch has already gone to lengths to blame Autonomy's poor post-acquisition license sales on H-P's mismanagement and dysfunctional sales culture. (shareholder suit) Update: H-P responds by stating it has "uncovered extensive evidence" of fraud.

    Poor sales post acquisition, has nothing to with prior accounting practices, can play into size of write off.
