Lying In the Written Word.

It is hard to spot mistruths in the written word. Especially short sentences. Usually look for conjecture in the statements, wording, repetition, vagueness in a complete thought, etc.

I think 'spotting a liar' can be difficult... some people just seem to have a knack for boldly looking others in the eye and (effectively) lying their pants off about just about everything they say. I think people lie because they think they're smarter than everyone else, and they do it to amuse themselves; but everything we do has a way of coming back to us, so honesty is always the best policy.
