Writer's Block: Honesty is such a lonely word

Do you think honesty is really the best policy when it comes to relationships? Is total honesty possible, let alone desirable?
Honesty is the only policy if you want the relationship to last. Anything built with flawed materials in the foundation will come crashing down when you try to put weight on it. That said, there should always be room for diplomacy and regard for the feelings of others. Too often, 'truth' is used as an excuse for 'ego'.

Uh huh. Let me know how that works out.

From slashdot:: ""Google — the world's largest online ad broker — sees no reason to worry about the addition of ad-blocking extensions to its Chrome browser. Online advertisers will ensure their ads aren't too annoying, the company says, and netizens will ultimately realize that online advertising is a good thing.""   Is that the same way we realized that we WANT to pay for music every time we change media, and we WANT to have our Internet access cut off if we're accused of filesharing?  If that was going to happen, wouldn't it sort of happened by now, and people wouldn't be creating the ad-blocker extensions? Someone's reading their own press releases a little too much.
