What are your definition(s) of a lie?

I'm going to say:

1) Saying something that is not the truth.
2) Lying by omission. (Not saying something)
3) Telling someone you will do something with no intent on actually doing anything at all.

Am I missing any or am I wrong?

Always best to just tell it like it is, but a lot of people think that means they can avoid tactfulness and be hurtful when in fact it should be the opposite in my opinion.

People who say, "I'm just telling you the truth" and use it to be hurtful are often just as bad.

So true-you don't have to speak everything that flits through your mind. Better to just be quiet a lot of the time
