Therefore you were lying us when you said it removed the "C Unleashed"
By the way (and this may be a French/English issue) to say that the OP
is lying seems rather harsh to me. It may be a simple mistake. I
would only use the term "lie" for a deliberate deception.
I like to use this strong word in these kinds of situations to stress
the importance of having a factual and assumption-less discourse when
talking about software, and scientific matters in general.
Take it as its barest meaning, of "telling something that is not
true", without moral conotations.
The corresponding French verb « mentir » also implies that the locutor
knows that what he says is false (but appearently, without _assuming_
any intention contrarily to 'to lie").
I fail to find a verb meaning simply "telling something that is not
true" either in French or English, it sees that as you put it, we'd
have to use a periphrase mentionning a mistake.
"Inadvertently stated". A good synonym is "unwittingly", which resonates nicely with my native language, Dutch: "onwetend" ('not knowingly').
But, "lie" is _much_ shorter, draws immediate attention, and besides, I am a big fan of "House".
