I don't know if you can draw that conclusion either. The clarification states: " Dr. Lott had asked the Editors that his name be removed in response to a continuing disagreement between him and the Review over certain revisions that Profs. Ayres and Donohue had made in the course of editing their paper." It does not clarify what revisions were made nor their implication.

The language used in last sentence of the clarification is worded in the manner of the modern apology, i.e. not actually apologizing for one's actions/words, but apologizing that people didn't like it:

"The Editors feel that the impression that some have gotten from Ayres and
Donohue's Reply piece is incorrect, unfortunate, and unwarranted. The Editors
regret the confusion."
