.
It appears to me that the first word(s) of the sentence have been inadvertantly deleted. It should read:

I knew we shouldn't have trusted them...

Closer to 'abandon', Nenad. Most of the time it's a fairly literal phrase - to leave.

Hi MM and BN,

I guess it's worth mentioning that the test sentence was never repaired. The first part of it is still missing.

I can't get to that one, sorry. I had hoped the author would step up and do the needful.
