I think the commish ought to make clear that in the future, transactions will only be reversed if, as in this case, the true intentions of the owner are 100% obvious and the retraction is made immediately. Otherwise, you might wind up with some uncomfortable and unnecessary disputes in the future.
Perhaps a mild penalty would also be in order, such as dropping to the bottom of the waiver priority list?
That's a bit much for hitting the wrong button in a moment of distraction, don't you think? I tend to lean toward the side of allowing people their mistakes with no repercussions - it's good Karma for when you mess up as Commish.
If you were in my league I'd reverse everything and post a message to the league explaining the special circumstances. This is obviously not preferential treatment or anything, just a Commish being a decent person.
You're all friends in your league, right? This is what friends do for friends.
