For example if i told you that this person had killed over 10 people in the past and i had killed that person it would be for the greater good(capital punishment, let's say i managed to get them in that situation)

You'd think hey that's not bad no-one wants that kind of person around but i(for the sake of examples) told you a half truth and didn't tell you the full story.

The full story let's say was the person had reformed of their ways and has started helping those less fortunate than themselves and never ever went near anyone again with the intent or anything to kill.

Am i lying or not?

Deliberately leaving out important information that would shed different light on a story is lying imo, yes

Let me point out all the lies in this email my dad sent to my mum in that case.


Ha pay back all the 30k in 4 years? Haha bs he won't do that, He never will. All his lies and all the bs he gave my mum no way.

Yea he has been dealing with all the matters for 12 month and before that? Oh of course all the YEARS my mum did it of course it doesn't count

Nice listing your job, ****ing idiot. from the word including to as well you can replace it with *in other words my job*

Paying house mortgage? Pft i'm pretty sure that's what people do anyway when they have it. It's like eating you do it everyday so why tell everyone you do it? Pointless.

Holiday? No that FEW WEEKS was to get HER MONEY back from my dad's brother which my dad's brother OWED TO MY MUM.

Spending family money. PFFFTTT baseless assumption and entierly wrong. She used her own money she had to get a ticket there and back

60k is my MUM'S MONEY he put the properties in my mums name not his that's his fault tough **** boo hoo you made a mistake you're dam fault.

Yes dealing with the bills and life. Thanks for listing what most people do anyway so why list it?

Abandoned? No he's only giving lies.

It's deceiving but I don't know about lying, devicing is twisting or telling the truth to make it seem different and lying is saying something that isn't true. Although lying is a form of deceiving but deceiving isn't lying

This, really. From a moral point of view, missing out important pieces of information to change perceptions in your favour is incredibly deceitful, but to lie is to tell something that isn't true, so technically the person the OP is describing hasn't lied but has instead been deceitful, which is no better in itself but again it's technically not a lie.
