    The only thing you can safely rely on is judging people by their actions. This will reveal where their true feelings and commitments lie. Look at the decisions people make, watch what they do, observe how they treat people they do not need to impress.

    Much agreed. I don't know what the F says about me but that's how I like to see things myself. I'm never nice just for the sake of karma (well, maybe with the old lady trying to cross the street and whatnot). As I meet people I tend to wear my "cool". It helps to filter people with ill intentions pretty fast.

    (By "cool" I mean knowing your good, something others might confuse with arrogance :P)

    EDIT:But just to be clear, jokes aside, I don't like messing with people heads at all.

    Wow, what an awful person. I'd never stoop to such a level to get something. There is something to be said for honor.

    This reminds me of my mother, minus the justice system part. Apparently my mother figured out a way to operate with out getting tagged.

    I once had a boss I had to do this with and I am so glad I don't have to anymore.

    I accept no responsibility, what so ever, for the fact that I exist; I do, however, accept full responsibility for what I do while I exist.

    Sweet talking is a form of manipulation.

    And not all manipulation is necessarily inherently wrong though I personally have a general disdain for it.
