No, it wasn't "just asking". It was a stupid question. They tell us when games are retired. They have a nifty icon at the top of each game saying if development is active or retired.
And each time they're asked, they're probably a little more tempted to retire the game. As someone who loves both CH.com AND Crusader Kings 2, I'd rather if you impatient people NOT ruin the trainer for myself and others who appreciate their efforts. Thanks.
