I did read it, and I found it unfortunate. The reason to remove
GamerGate was because of spam(!).

And the wording did not help that much either:

"The worst thing is that there seems to be systematic harassment of
people (especially women) by this campaign. If so this is terrible and
something that we absolutely condone."

They absolute "condone" harassment? I think the right word was
"condemn". But not clarification either.

If you scroll down in the thread past all the BS, Sijbrandij does explicitly clarify that "we absolutely condone" was a typo, and meant to say "absolutely can't condone".
