Topic: How Honest are you?


Honesty is a different animal than it was years ago. There was a time where a person's word meant something. Now adays, it's hard to believe anything someone says. The sad thing about our world is that someone can openly lie, get caught lying and people will still respect that person.

How honest are the people on this forum?

I know by asking this question, there are going to be a few people who fudge their answer. Before you post your answer, read through this list of questions. It came from a religious web site, but it brings up a lot of good points on honesty.
