I wasn't accusing you particularily. But in general, whether people say it or not, they still think it. Including myself. I wasn't really looking for a defence from anyone or plea of guilt, more just posting an interesting quote.
In your case, saying people have given up implies you have won. And i'm pretty sure once you said "Yay i win!
" in some thread. But possibly more as a joke than anything else. lol.
