That's not test automation framework!!!

I have been flabbergasted by the amount of misinformation test automation engineers have.
Many of my colleagues use QTP or Test Complete and believe that they have developed a test automation framework. Using a tool or creating directory structure for test automation is not equivalent to creation of test automation framework, in fact not at all. Moreover Indian software industry is so fascinated with word "framework" that this question keeps popping - "Did u design any framework", I wonder if every software test project needs a customized framework, and if so then I am not that so expert that keep designing framework for each and every project!!!
