He openly advocates agreeing to a contract with no intention of living up to the agreement. To normal people, that's the definition of dishonesty. If you're using the word differently than everyone else, it's literally impossible to hold a coherent discussion with you.

He advocated lying. Either he believes what he's saying, or he doesn't. That is a binary equastion; there are no other possibilities. If he does believe what he's saying, he's saying he's dishonest. If he doesn't, he's lying, and that's dishonest. It's a short logic tree, and both branches end in the same place: dishonesty.

In fact, I'm increasingly convinced he's not delusional, so much as a deliberate troll, whose sole purpose is to provoke people. The only real mystery is why the mods have put up with him as long as they have, since he hijacks every thread he can with his whining about having to pay for stuff he wants, and has even started a thread to mull over the details of a web site that, if he actually built it, would likely constitution criminal infringement.
