Condone -vs- Condemn

It happened twice in an online discussion last night: someone used the word "condone" when what they intended (based on the context of the rest of their post) was "condemn." I realize that the words are very similar in spelling and sound, but they're wildly different in meaning.  Use them appropriately to avoid making a muddled mess of your arguments.
