What is the best way to handle a poster that is just flat out lying?

Ignore, just let it go? Call them out?

  • 1)you can choose to ignore it
    2)you can ask them proof or post why you know they are not telling the whole truth and open the drama portal.

  • Depends on what they're lying about, but if it's nothing serious, I'd just let it go. It's not worth my time or energy to argue over silly crap.

  • If they're so dense that the think they're actually fooling anyone with their lies, you've got little chance of actually getting through to them with sense or logic. So don't bother wasting your time. Ignore the attention whores, eventually they go somewhere else to get their attention fix.

  • I let it go most of the time. If they feel the need to completely lie...then its not a person worth talking to. Probably cant talk them out of the stupid lie anyways :)

  • Ignore it, no need to start more drama. And I agree with the first poster!

  • First make sure they are lying!
    When I posted in one of the groups that my husband won some money I got called a liar, and was investigated lmao. And when I proved that I wasnt lying, they still couldn't let it go!
