If you're implying that I did, that's not what I said. I said it accelerates. Acceleration is ∆v/t, where v is velocity and t is time. Acceleration can be negative.
You certainly did not.
The composer of the ultiworld article did.

If only there were some single word that described the idea of negative acceleration, yet is so similar to that word that it would quickly spring to mind in discussion of matters of velocity and time. Maybe it would begin with "de-" instead of "a-" in order to show that it is the opposite of "acceleration."

Maybe someday.
