Just as a factual matter, per Wang Chun, F2Pool's owner: "I didn't pull
out of anything. I told Jihan long time ago that I would support segwit2x
only until July. Now it is September."
If anyone comes across evidence of miners/pools actually pulling out, many
of us would be sincerely interested to see it, though I'd suggest say
Twitter rather than a technical mailing list.
