Github is a revision control system.
At 4:34 PM on October 3, 2014, Github programmer Jake Boxer deleted the Gamergate news page at the request of Nexxy, decribing it as "a terms of service violation" and "a central point for organizing harassment campaigns."
Example of alleged harassment Edit

Dreww's comments Edit
On October 6, 2014, Github employee Drew Woods described the Gamergate investigation as:
- "a campaign of sexist whiny Internet babies ... using rape and death threats"
He did not actually provide any evidence of death or rape threats existing though.
