What happened to "No Comment"? That's a respectable response to questions you do not want to answer. Or evem "I am not at liberty to comment".

In stead they will call people names and accuse them of being that most maddening of words "mischievous".

Just say you cannot say or will not say dammit!

A man or woman's word is still worth something. People will never relate well to repeatedly false statements.

It is when you bought a "Pig in a poke", that was actually a cat. When it was opened you let "the Cat out of the bag" and realised that you had been fooled.
