Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's an interesting and original advice, at the very least, Kcurie.. :)
But what if a potential employer says you cannot be trusted because it is web-spread knowledge you always lie on forums ?

I think an employer should be very happy that you protect your privacy... and that you only lied on personal issues and only on the web. I do nto think it will ever happen to you...it would be a weird employer.. tracking you down on internet? Well, I would not get very close to this kind of boss in any case.

In a side note. Personally,  I think that lying is basically a force for the good. This world would be a mess if everybody would go around saying the truth.. but this you can not say to your boss. Me neither. So I lie :)

A pleasure

" this you can not say to your boss"

He isn't saying it to you either...

First thing I'd do with a prospective employee is Google them. Especially if their CV indicates they should be findable.
