czarodziej saidno, i forgive no lies. trust is like a soap bubble and once its gone there's no way to put it back together again. there's just no reason to lie. and if someone feels its ok, or feels compelled to, then what else will they lie about? i demand honesty from anyone i talk to, online or otherwise.
I agree mostly with czarodziej. I am big on honesty, Especially on very important things. There is no need to lie, especially to people you don't really know.
However there are people who have made such a habbit of hiding that it's nearly instinct! There is reason for this in many cases. A lot of gay men and women grow up having to live lies most of their lives, and trust may not come easilly to them, thus they may want to keep some information to themselves.
But it is not difficult to know where the line of "nessesary vagueness" and "lies" is. If you feel the need to be Vague, ok, but lies do not help you.
